Val de Vid Condesa Eylo Verdejo 2007

how about another white wine? i had this one at a tasting a while back and filed it away as a good patio pounder. selling for about $14, this is 100% verdejo, a spanish grown grape from the rueda region. this is an aromatic wine with nice nutty (almond) and red apple notes along with some grassy notes. the palate is citrus flavored, including lemon and grapefruit, and some grassy flavors. there are some nice mineral notes showing up in the finish. very acidic with a long finish. this is a great summer food wine. goes with just about anything. awesome summer wine. similar to a sauvignon blanc without the really heavy grapefruit. (apologies for the old label)
