El Perro Verde
Spain | Rueda
From a region famed for the Verdejo based wines, the El Perro Verde is truly a stand-out. Visiting a high altitude vineyard (between 700m – 800m) with loosely packed soil with plenty of stone and limestone, Angel Lorenzo Cachazo wanted to express the aromatic potential of the Verdejo variety. He founded the winery in 2005 with that goal in mind and within 15 years, he was able to create one of the best Verdejo wine Rueda has seen.
100% Verdejo sourced from three parcels, consisting of old bush vines near La Seca. Average age of the vines range from 15 to 35 years. Fermented and aged in stainless-steel tanks. The El Perro Verde is truly one of the best and most highly sought after white wine of the region.
