In comparison to other wines from the area, this Shaya Verdejo has a character that puts it in a category of its own.
The main part of this wine by Bodegas y Viñedos Shaya was fermented in stainless steel tanks, where it was aged for several months. A 30% of it, however, was fermented in oak barrels and aged for 3-4 months on its lees. Finally, Shaya Verdejo 2018 was blended and bottled.
The white wine Shaya Verdejo has a clean, bright pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This old-vines Verdejo smells of exotic fruit, citrus, ripe bananas, passion fruit, hay and some herbal and mineral nuances. Certainly a characterful white wine from Rueda.
This white wine by Bodegas y Viñedos Shaya is smooth and palate-coating, showing a fruity character and a vibrant acidity. This Verdejo from Rueda produced by Gil Family Estates also suggests some mineral undertones and bitter nuances, combined with notions of peach, spices and toast. Long finish.
