Pale yellow color. Strong bouquet of citrus, green apple, and passion fruit. Round and zesty mouthfeel with citrus, grapefruit, and green herb flavors. Smooth and elegant on the palate with intense lemon / lime and pear skin flavors. Similar to Pinot Grigio but with more body and more acidity.
Blanco Nieva Verdejo White
In 1989 Jose Maria Herrero acquired 135 acres of Verdejo and 12 acres of Sauvignon Blanc vineyards that had been neglected for many years. The vineyards varied in age up to 150 years old, and Jose Maria saw great potential in them. Jose Maria built his state of the art bodega later that year, which has been upgraded several times to keep up with all of the advancements in technology. The bodega is located in the small village of Nieva in the western portion of Rueda.
