Jose Pariente 2011 Verdejo Spain

The Jose Pariente 2011 Verdejo comes from Spain's Rueda region, an elevated, dry region that sits on the Castillian tablelands northwest of the Spanish capital of Madrid. Rueda has historically been an important wine-growing area and Verdejo has become Rueda's signature grape variety, producing fruity, refreshing, dry white wines with very aromatic herbaceous notes. Jose Pariente 2011 Verdejo was made from the Pariente family's 30-year-old vineyard that consistently contributes to award-winning wines. Brilliant straw yellow in color, the 2011 Verdejo has intensely fresh aromas of white fruits, citrus, and passion fruit with hints of fennel. On the palate, the wine has fresh notes of fruit with an elegant structure and a long, persistent finish. [+]
