Verdejo is an aromatic white from Spain, most notably Rueda. It has the potential to make very high quality wines which is why it is undergoing something of a renaissance at the moment after having languished in obscurity for generations. It has many similarities with Sauvignon Blanc; plenty of herby, grassy notes and goes a little bit nutty with age. It blends well with Viura and also Sauvignon Blanc where it's often used to add body and richness to Sauvignon's aromatic lift. Its finest manifestations tend to be from Rueda Superior, which must contain a minimum of 85% Verdejo.
