Product Description

This varietal Verdejo is a Spanish white wine from Rueda made from pre-phylloxera vineyards more than 100 years of age.  

The vines of Shaya Habis grow in an extremely harsh terroir located in the Segovian meseta, a plateau in the heart of peninsular Spain characterized by freezing cold winters and boiling summers.

The production of this old-vines Verdejo from Bodegas y Viñedos Shaya was guided by minimal intervention criteria, in order not to unmask the remarkable quality of the fruit.

Thus, the free-run must was fermented in 500 and 600 litre new oak barrels. Then, Shaya Habis 2018 was aged for 8 months to gently smooth its delightfully deep character.

It is advisable to decant this Crianza white wine from Rueda at least 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Shaya Habis is bright straw yellow with greenish reflections.


This old-vines Verdejo is quite complex, with notes of citrus, ripe pineapple, a panoply of aromatic herbs and some floral remembrances. In the background we perceive some dry earth undertones, smoky hints and a delicate touch of oak.


Bold, big and tremendously fresh, this white wine from Bodegas y Viñedos Shaya has a nice structure with plenty of detail, suggesting white and yellow fruit, along with some dry mineral notes, hints of wood and some refreshing, bitter undertones. Excellent acidity and long finish reminiscent of citrus, toast and dry earth.

Our personal opinion

An exclusive white wine, Shaya Habis 2018 preserves and honours the heritage of some precious old Verdejo vines.

Warning: decant the wine 1 HOUR minimum. Trust me. Then it will start to sing. However, it will be much better in 3 or 4 years.
