The story! Always a shy grape, Verdejo was saved from extinction by Angel Rodriguez and his vineyard, Martinsancho. From a single 17th century plot, with less than one acre of Verdejo vines, Rodriguez has expanded to 25 acres of prime soil. Made from a blend of both plots, this wine makes a compelling case for keeping Verdejo around. 

In your mouth: Light but lush, I'm full of intriguing contradiction. Fresh notes of citrus blossom mingle with creamy melon and a surprising herbal depth. I linger on the palate, bright peach slowly fading as layer after layer of flavor unfolds.
