El Cortijillo Verdejo shows a pale straw green color. It is fresh and aromatic with floral notes, peach, crisp apple and tropical fruits. A mineral accent and herbal notes. Good acidity, it is refreshing on the palate, fruity and smooth.

"(all stainless steel) Pale gold. Incisive aromas of lime zest, pear skin and quinine, backed by subtle herb and floral notes. Taut and vibrant in style, offering refreshingly bitter citrus and orchard flavors, a subtle touch of honey and bracing minerality. Closes on a vaguely warm note, displaying good clarity and length. - Josh Raynolds

"Golden straw color. Bright, attractive, tropical aromas of creme brulee and fruit tart with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, intriguing, snappy lime and apple finish with crunchy, fruit tannins and light oak. A super smooth and pure white sipper."

"Light, bright yellow. Lively mineral-accented aromas of lemon pith and green apple, with a white pepper topnote. Zesty citrus fruit flavors show good clarity and intensity, as well as a slight tartness. The dry, tightly wound finish repeats the lemon note and leaves a bitter quince taste behind. No excess fat here."

"Light yellow straw with a perfumed, floral nose revealing white pepper and peach with citrus and honey notes. It’s soft, simple and very pleasant to drink. Very good value!"

"Pale yellow. Subtle aromas of nectarine, ginger and white flowers, plus a hint of lemon zest. Supple, round and dry, offering bitter citrus and pit fruit flavors and a touch of fresh herbs. Finishes firm and dry, with good clarity and tangy cut. Outstanding value here. - JR"
