When summer comes we switch to white wine and in Spain that usually means a bottle of Verdejo. These eminently drinkable whites usually come from the Rueda region, but the other week I went to. Wine tasting at vinopremier.com for the Bodegas Valbusenda where we tried a Verdejo from Toro.
It was a very pale lemon colour with a light scent of sweet tropical fruit: pineapple, banana and melon. This wine is aged on its own lees for two months but I got no hint of that.
It is a dry wine with high acidity and a light plus body. Because of the acidity Ingot more citrus that tropical flavouring but there was also watered down pineapple juice in the mix. It had a bitter finish due to the acidity.
Now most Verdejo wines have high acidity, but this one was too high for me and it affected the flavour. I think I’ll stick to the Verdejo from Rueda.
