Normally, Verdejo wines have a high amount of acidity that was originally developed to counter the amount of saltiness in the food (mind you, this was way back in the days when salt was also used as a preservative), so when you generally get a Verdejo, or a Vino Verde, you tend to cringe in anticipation. However, this wine has a very balanced acidity that is not sharp, though it does hit you in the end, but it very manageable for every class of drinker.

That said, this wine should be drank along with seafood or lighter fare, but not alongside desserts. It's also a great palate cleanser.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
