    Rueda is one of Spain’s best-kept secrets.  Its signature grape, Verdejo, is native to the region of Rueda in Castilla y Leon, in north west Spain.  Winemaking in Rueda has been documented as early as the 10th century and it was the first D.O. (Designation of Origin) to be approved in Castilla y León, in 1980. Rueda sits at half a mile above sea level, where the climate is extreme with cold winters, late springs and blistering summers.  Verdejo thrives under these conditions, concentrating flavour.  Roots are forced to dig deep through the sandy, stony soil for water and nutrients, giving the wines a slight minerality. Huge temperature swings between day and night help maintain the balance between sugar and acidity in the Verdejo grape.

    The ‘Flor de Vetus’ Rueda is 100% Verdejo and is sourced from an 80-year-old vineyard that lies at 820 metres above sea level in the cool area of Segovia, giving a crisp and fresh style of white wine.  It is a vibrant yellow in colour.  On the nose are intense aromas of tropical, white stone and citrus fruits. The fruit characters carry through to the palate, balanced by refreshing acidity and a long finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
