The Verdejo is crystal clear, and pale straw in color. The nose is fresh and aromatic, with delicate hints of pear and white peach, flower blossom, beeswax and mineral notes. On the palate, the wine is light and dry, with a surprising concentration of soft appley fruit, a crisp finish and a slight prickle that refreshes on a hot day.
Marques de Irun Verdejo
The winery is owned by Emilio Lustau who is a part of the Luis Caballero group of companies. The vineyards are located near La Seca, 4km east of the town of Rueda itself in the heart of the DO area. The climate here is continental, with cold winters and very hot summers, but the high altitude of the vineyards, 500 to 750m above sea level, means cool nights even in the middle of summer. Therefore valuable acids and aromatic flavor compounds are not lost during ripening. This is particularly important for the quality and balance of the white wines produced.
