The Oddbins Take

This dry, delicate and very endearing Spanish white from an almost unheard of grape - Verdil - reminds one a little of Sauvignon Blanc but that's to sell its individuality short. If we were to make a music video to describe this wine, we would film a cowboy, chopping a pineapple seductively in an oasis in the vivid sunshine of the Arizona desert, with the chirping of crickets emanating from the lush vegetation and someone spraying themselves with a hose in the background. Why? Because this wine is simultaneously dry, refreshing, sexy, herby, zippy and evocative. See for yourself!

Verdil is a rare grape, native to Valencia, that has only 50ha of plantings worldwide and yields an amazingly fresh, zingy wine with bite that, in the cool climes of Valencia, thrives. A brilliant seafood wine.
