      Verdejo? What does it mean?

      Verdejo wine is a rare variety that mostly comes from Spain. It has a similar flavor profile to sauvignon blanc, pinot grigio and chardonnay, but its rarity makes it way more intriguing for many wine nerds.

      There are two main styles of verdejo: lean and oak-aged. Lean varieties have intense lime notes and a grassy fragrance, and you'll typically find them in a Bordeaux bottle. Oak-aged varieties have smoky notes as well as hints of almonds and lemon curd. The process of aging gives them a medium-bodied, creamy texture. You'll usually find them in a low-shoulder bottle.

      What does it taste like?

      This white grape wine features notes of lime, citrus, fennel, grass and citrus blossom. The citrusy flavor profile makes it easy to pair the wine with many foods. To put it briefly, you can drink verdejo with any dish where you'd put lime. 

      For example, why don't you try it with fish tacos? The high acidity and slightly bitter flavor of the wine cleanses your palate between one bite and another. Alternatively, you can try verdejo with other Spanish dishes like chicken in pepitoria sauce, manchego, Zamorano and seafood-based tapas. 

      If you're vegetarian, don't worry; verdejo pairs well with tofu and seitan as well. Many spices, like basil, parsley, cayenne pepper and cumin, blend well with the wine's flavor profile, so you can use them in your vegetarian dishes. Meat eaters can complement this Spanish white wine with chicken and pork loin. 

      History of verdejo

      The grape from which verdejo white wine derives has its roots in North Africa. So, how did it arrive in Spain? Under Moorish rule in the 11th century, Iberian Christians knew the verdejo grape produced a special wine, so they decided to bring it to Spain to keep enjoying it.
