This week we're happy to feature one of our favourite Spanish varieties: Verdejo. Commonly known as a grape native to Spain, especially Rueda, Verdejo is also believed to have migrated from North Africa in the 11th Century. Over the past fifteen years we have seen a sharp rise in Verdejo's popularity, and many consider it an excellent alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
Over the last 50 years, Bodegas Gallegas has grown to become Spain's largest wine producer, while Verdejo has become one of the country's finest grapes. Expect a fruity bouquet of gooseberry, kiwi, and citrus. More of the same on the palate, with added melon, lime, and peach flavours. Pairs splendidly with Mexican cuisine or anything that contains lime.
