This is a tart dry wine which is best chilled. The first sips are rather harsh but they mellow out on the palate very quickly.
It is an OK wine that does not mask the fact that it is inexpensive. It is rough around the edges. It is not unpleasant but it is definitely not very refined.
Perhaps it is the grape, Verdejo, which gives it this flavour. I am not familiar with this variety, so I don’t really have the frame of reference to really properly comment on the success of this fermentation.
As mentioned it is good chilled but starts to exhibit a more combative flavour once the temperature of the wine approaches room temperature. The experience is not off putting – just a little disappointing.
