Verdejo

Verdejo is a white grape varietal that hails from the Rueda region of central-north Spain. Interestingly enough, it was long-forgotten until relatively recently and it is now clawing its way back in a major way. Whilst the best examples of a Rueda Blanc are, arguably, pure Verdejo it is often blended with a touch of Sauvignon Blanc to give it an extra kick.
