Tapena Verdejo Spanish white wine Tapena Verdejo Spanish white wine

Verdejo (ver-DAY-ho) is the Spanish answer to Sauvignon Blanc with a hint more floral aromas. Verdejo is known to come from several regions across Spain ranging from Rueda to Tierra de Castilla. This varietal has been written about by wine writers from Robert Parker to Hugh Johnson as the next hot white known for good value for the money.

Tasting Notes
This pale yellow hued wine has a vibrant nose with an array of aromas of tropical fruits over a backdrop of ripe peaches. The palate is full of bright stone fruit that is beautifully balanced with a crisp, refreshing acidity and a lingering finish with a hint of minerality.

Food Pairings
Tapeña Verdejo is a delightful white that pairs well
with many different dishes. Try it with grilled salmon, lemon chicken, creamy lighter cheeses such as goat cheese or a fresh summer salad.

Wine Reviews
Recommended
- 2010 Vintage
"Tapena from the Ferrer family makes an approachable Verdejo for a great price that is an ideal pairing with grilled fish and big summer salads."

Best Buy, 2008 vintage
"A consistent wine from year to year that’s made in a friendly, mass-appeal style. It’s not so pungent and citrusy like some Verdejo; instead it’s more peachy, sweet and melony. Soft on the finish but with just enough acidity to get it through the year."
- M.S., Wine Enthusiast Magazine, February 2010
