Light bright yellow. Aromas of Meyer lemon and green apple are accented by suggestions of chalky minerals and sea salt. Dry and racy on the palate, offering lively citrus fruit and fresh fig flavors and a subtle touch of tarragon. Closes on a juicy note, featuring resonating stoniness and very good focus and length. -- Josh Raynolds.
Oro de Castilla is a wine made by Bodegas Hermanos del Villar in the Rueda DO region. Made in a classic style which showcases the bright, fresh and mineral flavors of the Verdejo grape, this wine has been called “a textbook Verdejo” by renowned wine critic Josh Raynolds of Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar. Many people consider Oro de Castilla a reference point Verdejo. Oro de Castilla means “the Gold of Castile” in English. It is located at a high elevation, overlooking the town of Rueda, planted in a bed of river stones covering a limestone subsoil. The vines are among the oldest in the region, with deep root systems that penetrate the limestone and mineral subsoils. Oro de Castilla is best enjoyed when it is young, for it is a wine that is all about the youth and bright, lively flavors of the Verdejo grape.click here for more information.
