92 Points - James Suckling
I never tasted anything quite like this. Bright, greenish color. Full of plum and gooseberry aromas, this will appeal to lovers of sauvignon blanc, but it has a more creamy texture than that grape ever achieves. Clean, chalky finish that screams out for salad and fish!
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Beronia Rueda 2017 is pale yellow in color with greenish tints. Intensely aromatic, it displays notes of citrus and white fruit along with herbaceous aromas that are typical of the grape variety, such as fennel. Richly textured on the palate, it is fresh and elegant, with a slight touch of bitterness on the finish, also characteristic of the Verdejo grape.
An ideal accompaniment for all sorts of fish dishes, as well as for lean white meat. Pasta, rice and cheese also pair well with this wine.
