I have not gone mad. But after (re) reading our tasting notes of a Verdejo from Rueda. I had to title this post this way.
Forget about those tropical, acid flavours and even they are nice, the true Verdejo is nothing like that. The truth is that Verdejo is a lot better than that. It will really surprise you after all those come tropical-flavour wines. This native wine from Valladolid amazed me from nose to palate experience. Sweet and deliciously good.
The first authentic Verdejo we tried was to Javier Sanz Viticultor, wines from Rueda, original, very nice and worth trying. And after more than a thousand Verdejo, we find this Palacio de Bornos. No wonder it is so famous and popular. You will understand after trying it…
Perfect to have at any occasion.
Palacio de Bornos 2012.
Price: from 5,36€/bottle.
Colour: pale yellow colour, transparent with greenish hues.
In the nose attacks with peach, banana, pear and red apple notes. With hints of anise.
In the palate is sweet, refreshing, slightly acid, creamy, salty, envolving, velvety, very fruity (pear). Long and intense aftertaste. Easy to drink. Fresh, balanced with a very reshing acid notes.
Best pairing with pumpkin puree and pork chop, risottos, paellas and typical Italian food.
What do you think of this Rueda? Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
