The 2016 vintage was awarded 89 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their July 2017 edition review of Rueda Verdejos (see blue link below). We appreciate it is subjective, but we judge the 2015 to be of equal quality and drinkability, and the 2016 will be coming (y)our way soon!
The special personality of Beronia Rueda Verdejo comes from the perfect unión of the Verdejo variety and the ‘cascajoso’ stony soil of the region. The vineyard, well ventilated, rich in calcium, magnesium and with excellent drainage, give this Beronia Rueda a unique character.
A wine produced from two different harvests in the same vineyard. An early harvest with fermentation at high temperatures in order to achieve an explosion of aromas and notes of ripe stone fruits. Then a second later harvest fermentated at lower temperatures looking for maturity and more concentration and complexity on the palate. The resulting wine is a blend of the two distinct winemaking techniques to achieve an aromatic wine which is fresh, flavoursome and, at the same time, complex.
Beronia Rueda 2015 shows a bright pale yellow colour with a hint of green. An intense nose with vibrant and persistant herbal, grassy aromas, typical of Verdejo. On the palate it is full, fruity and dry with a long finish. This 2015 vintage shows and extremely textured mouth due to the quality of the skins giving fine lees. The wine has a balanced acidity and an attractive bitterness that is characteristic of this variety.
This wine should always be served chilled. Ideal with salads or fish, also with white or lean meat dishes.
The only similarity with the Beronia Blanco is that both are made from 100% Viura. This wine undergoes fermentation in American oak barrels for 5 months, the result is a full-bodied wine with delicious vanilla and mature fruit characters and a creamy finish.
Aromatic with good straight forward fruit showing hints of apricot stones. Fresh, balanced, pure flavours showing good mineral character with a good length and texture on the palate.

Light gold colour. Complex and elegant nose with hints of vanilla, honeysuckle and wild fennel. Dense, mouth filling palate, with hints of nuts as well as of toasted wood and an underlying reminiscence of fine lees.
The 2015 vintage was awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of 'Weekday Wines' (under £25) (see blue link below). We appreciate it is subjective, but we judge the current 2016 vintage (2015 has sold out!) to be of equal quality and drinkability!
Made from Albariño grapes grown in the Salnés Valley region of Rías Baixas, located close to the town of Cambados. Here, on undulating hills, the vineyards are planted on rocky and alluvial soils; they benefit from cooling influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Unoaked, the wine is a bright, pale lemon colour with hints of apple green. Aromas of white flowers, hints of peach and apricot lead to a fresh, fruity palate; it has a lovely intensity and an almost saline minerality.
A slightly oily mouthfeel with classic notes of lychee, rose petal and cooked stone fruit.
Straw-yellow with greenish hues. Intensely aromatic wine with fresh flavourful complex and elegant. Fresh fruity and round; dry and has good acidity.
