This Marques de Caceres Excellens Verdejo is vibrant with notes of tropical fruit, white flowers, peaches and apricots. From Rueda, exquisitely fresh in the mouth with an unfolding structure and luscious, long-lasting flavours. Its outstanding elegance shows through in the personality of this unique verdejo wine of limited production.
The newest wine to be added to the Excellens range, from Marques de Caceres. Excellens Verdejo is produced in Rueda. Rueda is one of Spain’s leading wine regions and due to the shortage of white grape varieties in the region of Rioja. Marques de Caceres decided to acquire 125 hectares of Rueda vineyards famous for growing the verdejo grape. The climate is more continental than Rioja with Atlantic maritime influences making tropical fruits more apparent on the nose and palate.The climate is continental with average temperatures of 13°C and an average annual rainfall of 460mm. The Verdejo grapes are collected during the night when temperatures are cooler ,to keep intact and strengthen their attributes. The Excellens Verdejo was recently awarded 90 points in the James Suckling report 2019
Great with shellfish such as mussels and clams and white meats like chicken in a white sauce.
