2008 Vidal Soblechero "Viña Clavidor" Verdejo Rueda

SKU #1049136

Produced from 50-60 year old verdejo vines, these grapes are hand harvested, treated with the utmost care and show classic verdejo aromas of soft melon, peach and a hint of tropicality. On the palate the wine is fresh and mineral, with lovely melon and white peach flavors. Great verdejo for a reasonable price.

I was reminded how much I like this clean, zippy Verdejo at our recent staff tasting. The nose is citrusy and fresh, aromas which are echoed as flavors on the palate with the additions of a touch of tangerine and mineral note. Light bodied, with higher acidity, this is a fun, food-friendly white that makes a great apertif or companion to fresh or fried seafood dishes.

This Verdejo is harvested from 50 to 60 year old vines, producing a wine of surprising depth for $12.99. The Viña Clavidor is a pale lemon-yellow color and offers up aromas of fresh straw, musk melon, white nectarines, and beautiful wet-stone minerality. These fruit characteristics carry over to the medium bodied palate. This wine is both fresh and focused without being austere. Try this with fresh sea scallop ceviche, crab cakes, gilled white fish or pesto pasta.

Verdejo is rapidly becoming one of my favorite white varietals. It may not deliver the complexity of top-tier sauvignon blanc but it gets really close for a fraction of the price. The "Clavidor" is old vine fruit and it really shines through with powerful flavors of melon and citrus rind. A hint of chalk on the finish lends some nice minerality to this wine that is both superb for quaffing but even better with a salad comprised of fresh melon, feta cheese, pine nuts and chervil.

The nose of this wine is the epitome of grace - subtle citrus notes mixed with crushed rocks - and the palate continues with tangy, tart acidity. The mineral tones are brillianty interwoven with the other flavors and act as the foundation of the wine's finish, which is long, long, long...Very good wine.

A tasty, minerally wine with zesty acidity, aromas of talc and peach, and citrus and stone flavors. If you are a fan of French Sauvignon Blanc you will like this wine.
