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, this varietal old-vines Verdejo was blended and bottled.
