Orden Tercera Verdejo 2011

Vintage: 2011

Style: Dry White

Country: Spain

Region: Rueda


Overview: ‘Tis the season to scramble around frantically with the hordes, pointing at useless objects such as a vase that doubles as a fully functioning dinosaur robot yelling in pure panic, ‘Do you think such-and-such would like that?’ ‘Tis the season to fumble around on the internet buying presents from Bulgaria, hoping and praying that it gets here in time for Christmas. ‘Tis the season to put reindeer antlers on your pets and lower their self-esteem by forcing them to pose for you so that you can exploit them for your homemade Christmas cards.  ‘Tis the season to put your feet up and enjoy a damn fine drop from Spain.

Verdejo is an aromatic, elegant variety that matches well with seafood and light chicken dishes and is predominantly grown in the Rueda region of Spain. It’s a great alternative to varieties like Riesling, Verdelho and Semillon.


Tasting note: A lifted, fresh nose which includes aromas of straw, peach and melon. On the palate there is the typical talc character with hints of white flesh nectarine and jasmine flowers. The finishes clean and flinty yet creamy at the same time.


Final Say: Chill out, and have a glass of Verdejo. $26 dollars a bottle.

Score: 18 out of 20 (90 out of 100)
