Rueda Verdejo

I love the white wines coming out of Spain right now. Spicy, crisp, and a bit of funk. This Rolland & Galarreta wine from the Rueda region is made with the Verdejo grape. While Verdejo is better known for its use in fortified wines, like Madeiran wine, it can make some full body, aromatic, fruity whites. This wine is medium body and rich. Honeydew melon, tangerine, and a bit of horsey barn on the nose. The taste is pear, toast, and lemon pepper.
