Dominio La Granadilla Rueda 2017
Family owned estate located in the heart of Rueda in the town of Navas del Rey. It belongs to 4 brothers and sisters who are real "vine growers". They own a beautiful vineyard of 70 ha planted mainly with Verdejo and a little bit of sauvignon blanc.
A fresh and vibrant white wine with a character typical of the variety, pale straw-yellow in the glass with greenish highlights from the Verdejo grapes.
The nose is very intense with notes of fruit (orange peel and fresh apple), very well put together with spice and balsam (fennel, freshly mown grass and liquorice), resulting in a wine that is fresh and has a very complex bouquet.
The finish is long and brings back the fresh fruit (apple, pear combined with the spices of the nose. Ultimately we have a wine that is elegant, complex, young, fresh and makes you want more.
One of the best ways to drink Verdejo is alongside food. The wine’s higher acidity and subtle bitterness make it work very well as a palate cleanser. Things to keep in mind when creating pairings is to use Verdejo’s lime and citrusy flavors to offset a dish. As a general rule, if you would put lime in the meal, it will probably pair well with Verdejo!
Last but not least they obtained 2 gold medals this year at Concours mondial Brussels and Bacchus.
