El Gordo del Circo Verdejo, Rueda, Casa Rojo

Whilst the grape variety Verdejo performs admirably in the largest region of Spain, Castilla y León, the top examples come from Rueda situated astride the River Duero, to the south. Here on old vines, grown in pebble-strewn vineyards the best grapes are grown; these are harvested at night to keep the grapes cool, with indigenous yeasts being employed for the ferment. Bright and aromatic, the nose shows pear, apple, tropical nuances and fresh herbs; wide and intense on the palate with a spicy richness gained from a period of lees ageing.
