If you like serious Burgundy &/or natural white wines w/ skin contact, this is the wine for you! From Segovia, this wine comes from over 200 year old, pre-phylloxera vines, aged in local chestnut, corked with local cork, and sealed with local beeswax (smell the cork!). The wine is bottled without any SO2 and will leave you breathless. Full yet light, layered, with dancing notes of dried fruit and cashews. You will not believe... THIS IS TRUE VERDEJO!
