Vidal Soblechero, Viña Clavidor Cepas Viejas Rueda DO 2017
This outstanding white from Rueda is made from Verdejo and Viura vines between 60 and 100 years old respectively (cepas viejas). It combines the pronounced Verdejo aromatics of laurel and almonds with the delicate florality of Viura. Bright acidity gives it freshness and balances a rich and smooth body with alluring notes of hazelnuts and almonds in the finish. Organic wine. 13%. Drink now to 2020.
Serving suggestions: Great aperitif wine to enjoy with nuts and olives, ideal also for vegetable, fish and white meat dishes. A good match also with not too spicy Asian food, eg Cantonese Chinese.
