Beronia Rueda Verdejo Blanco 2021 is the only wine produced by Beronia Rueda, the project in this Castilian appellation of the company belonging to the González Byass group. This singular monovarietal is the result of a double harvest and complete fermentation in stainless steel and concrete tanks. It is elegant, fresh and tasteless.
James Suckling has listed this as one of the best value Verdejo wines under $15.
“..verdejo’s great value zone remains in Rueda, which continues to churn out refreshing, reliable and unassuming varietal verdejos (with at least 85 percent verdejo) in the under-$15 category. Below are eight that deliver excellent quality and value.”
Suckling About the Beronia Rueda Verdejo Blanco 2020: “A fruity nose of white grapefruit, sliced pear, lemon and gooseberry. It’s medium- to full-bodied with crisp acidity. Juicy and flavorful. Vegan. Drink now. Score – 91.”
Light, pale yellow colour with hints of green.
Bouquet with great aromatic intensity. Citrus (grapefruit) and white fruit notes dominate, accompanied by herbal aromas characteristic of the grape variety, such as fennel.
On the palate it is tasteless, fresh and elegant. The finish offers a sweet touch of bitterness typical of Verdejo and evokes the feeling of eating a pomegranate, a fresh fruit aftertaste.
DISHES THAT GO WELL WITH THIS WINE
Ideal to accompany fish in its various preparations, as well as white meat and a little fat. Pasta, rice and cheese combine perfectly with this wine.
