About the Wine

Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Casa Rojo. El Gordo del Circo Verdejo Rueda, Casa Rojo is an inviting wine, made from Verdejo grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Zesty and aromatic with a soft, ripe fruit an ideal partner for flavoursome seafood dishes.
Arguably Spain's finest white grape variety, a herbaceous white wine that grows almost exclusively in the Rueda region of Spain. Not to be confused with Verdelho, a Portuguese grape used primarily in Madeira. Typically Verdejo dominated wines are crisp with soft, creamy, nutty overtones, and often accompanied by notes of honey.
