2013 Ossian Verdejo - 92 + PTS - WA

wa92"The 2013 Ossian is pure Verdejo from old vines in the village of Nieva in Segovia, within the appellation of Rueda, but sold without the appellation -- as the wine was initially rejected because 'it lacked Rueda typicity.' Lacking Rueda typicity might now be considered a good thing by many, as the quality of a majority of wines from the popular appellation is appalling. It has a creamy nose with a mixture of freshly cut grass and orange peel, quite Verdejo, feeling fresh and young. The palate is very balanced and fresh with good acidity, almost citric, pure and delineated with nicely-integrated oak that is a lot less noticeable than in their earlier vintages. It has very good tension. This wine is a triumph over the vintage conditions. "
