Verdejo Wine Variety
Verdejo is a high quality Spanish white wine variety now used in Australia.
It is best known for the production of aromatic dry white wines in the Rueda region north west of Madrid. Small amounts are grown on other regions of Spain, but very little eleswhere.
As Spain moves more towards production of quality wines the area of Verdejo is growing at the expense of lesser quality varieties.
Verdejo is not related to the Portuguese wine variety Verdelho. This article attempts to clarify the differences between several white wine varieites with similar names.
