Verdejo

The World's Next Great White Wine

Flavor Profile: Elegant and graceful wines highlighting citrus, stone fruits (white peaches!), and vivacious acidity. With aging, the young wines gain body, presence, and a silky texture.

 

  • Verdejo is a world-class wine with a reputation for satisfying richness and complex herb and mineral notes.
  • Use of lees-aging adds texture to Verdejo, and when combined with oak-aging the wines have an aging potential of 5-10 years.
  • Rueda’s Verdejo wines compare stylistically with Sancerre, Chablis and Bordeaux Blanc.
  • Count on Rueda wines to outpunch in their weight class, showing vibrancy, great acidity and remarkable food pairability.

Tempranillo

Also called Tinta del País or Tinto Fino

Flavor Profile: Ripe, muscular fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberry bramble, dried fig, vanilla, and cassis are structured with lively acidity to create complex wines with heroic aging potential.

  • Tempranillo grapes from Ribera have small berries with thicker skins, darker color and elevated acidity, resulting in complex wines with exceptional balance and notable aging structure.
  • Ribera del Duero’s Tempranillo wines go head-to-head with the best from world-class wine regions such as Napa Valley, Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Piedmont.
  • Like the castles that dominate the landscape, the red wines of Ribera del Duero are majestic, imposing, and unexpectedly awe-inspiring.
