Bright, straw-yellow colour. As you expect from the Verdejo variety, the wine shows high aromatic intensity on the nose, with aromas of tropical fruit and also hints of fennel and fresh grass. Fresh yet smooth on the palate with a slightly bitter finish which is typical of the variety, giving it a long, pleasant finish. Overall it can be enjoyed as a fresh, balanced wine.
Bodegas de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal has 220 hectares with an average age of 25 years, among which part is planted with the indigenous Verdejo grape variety.
