K&L Notes

Produced from primarily estate-grown Verdejo, just outside the village of La Seca ("the cradle of Verdejo" as the sign states!), this is a wonderful expression of Rueda. Verdejo, in its refreshing, cleanly fruited profile and tropical leanings, mimics Sauvignon Blanc, without any overt green notes or the occasional blowsiness of some New World examples. Ayre's aromas of white peach and fruit cocktail lead to a palate of fresh fruits, with some minerality adding further structure and focus.

Delightfully fresh, delicate, light and full of vitality. Creamy and nutty and so pleasant on the palate. This fantastic inexpensive Spanish white wine is truly a wonderful deal. Stock up for your next pool party and lunch gatherings.

A long-time favorite here at K&L but you might not recognize it with its great new label. I think the wine has taken as big of a qualitative jump and the label did. It has always been crisp and easy but there if a purity to the fruit and a mineral element on the finish. This will leave all Sauvignon Blanc is blanc in the store at the same price and a little higher in its dust.
