Tasting note of Caserío de Dueñas Verdejo Superior
Caserío de Dueñas Verdejo Superior bright yellow colour with greenish reflections.
Great aromatic intensity, the notes and tipicity of the Verdejo variety stand out. Citrus aromas delicately interlaced with notes of chamomile, fennel, bone fruit and subtle touches of honey. On the nose it is very elegant, fresh and complex.
In the mouth is a wine with a lot of density and intensity. Fruit and mineral notes appear again, giving rise to a persistent, fresh and balsamic end of mouth. Silky texture, with great amplitude and volume in mouth contributed by its stay on Lees. Very balanced. Delicious.
