2020 Green and Social Rueda Organic Verdejo - 91 PTS - TP

tasting panel logo"Sustainability is the mantra behind this label: from recycled glass, to aluminum capsules free of plastics, and a sugar cane cap with zero carbon footprint. Lemon blossom petals melt on the tongue with a powdery mouthfeel. Prickly pear notes and stark minerality finish with a tangerine gleam."

2020 Green and Social Rueda Organic Verdejo - Excellent/Extraordinary - WP

wplogo"There’s a lot of information about this wine on the label: It’s made with organic grapes certified by the Council of Ecological Agriculture of Castilla y León. It’s certified as vegan by the European Vegetarian Union. The closure (the proper word for a cork that isn’t made of cork) is made from sugar cane-based polymers with zero carbon footprint. The capsule over that closure is made from recyclable plastic-free aluminum. The label is recycled paper, and the lightweight bottle is made from recycled glass “to minimize emissions.” The co-op winery, established in 1935, supports 383 rural families and promotes gender equality. I will add that the wine is delicious, with flavors of stone fruit and a fresh hint of citrusy acidity. Applause for an outfit producing lovely wine and taking extra steps to do right by their people and the Earth.

"Pale yellow with soft green highlights, this wine has aromas of lemon zest and honeysuckle. Lively on the palate, it offers bold mouthfeel, strong acidity, plus passion fruit, pineapple and clementine flavors spiked with a hint of dried sage. - Mike DeSimone"
