Legaris Verdejo represents the winery's first foray into D.O. Rueda. Launched in 2010, the very first vintage of this youthful and modern white wine won a gold medal in the New Wave Spanish Wine Awards. Its explosively aromatic nose of white fruit and citrus and its floral elegance will captivate you on the nose. The flavours are amplified on the palate, leaving the bitter finish that is typical of the variety. It is a very good choice to enjoy with salad, fish, rice or pasta dishes. You won't be disappointed.
A wine that is intense on the nose, with a floral bouquet and notes of white fruit intermingled with faint herbal hints.
Lots of body on the palate with along finish and the characteristic bitter aftertaste of the Verdejo varietal.
