New white wine from Bodega García de Verdevique

The wines of Antonio García Santiago of bodega Garcia de Verdevique are well appreciated in our guest house El Paraje. They are natural wines from the Contraviesa with a lot of character. White wines do not have a large tradition in the Alpujarras, but Garcia de Verdevique makes a nice 100% Vigriego, which is an autoctonous grape variety.
A few weeks ago Antonio García Santiago announced a new white wine, that modest as he is himself, does not have a special commercial name. It is a mixture of Vigriego, Vioguier, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
It can be described as wine with a profound gold yellow colour, a subtle flowery bouquet, a long complex taste with a light nutty flavour and a fresh, slightly dry ending.  Character again.
No doubt that we will keep this wine on our list.
¡Felicidades Antonio!

En efecto, enhorabuena Antonio. El vino que me llevé el otro día en la Feria de Órgiva lo tengo fresquito en la nevera, a la temperatura justa, y lo estoy apreciando mucho.

Lo dicho salud y saludos a El Paraje!
