Verdejo White Wine Variety

Verdejo is a high quality Spanish white wine variety now used in Australia.

Verdejo and Verdelho: What's the difference?

See this article for a brief discussion.

Verdejo is not related to the Portuguese wine variety Verdelho, which is much more commonly grown in Australia.

Verdelho is best known for the production of aromatic dry white wines in the Rueda Wine Region north west of Madrid. Small amounts are grown on other regions of Spain, but very little elsewhere.

As Spain moves more towards production of quality wines the area of Verdejo is growing at the expense of lesser quality varieties.

The Verdejo variety is a newcomer to the varietal wine scene in Australia. Just a handful of winemakers have released wine. Among the pioneers was Trentham Estate who won trophies for their 2103 Verdejo at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show.
