2009 Pedro Escudero Valdelainos Verdejo Rueda

Happy Hour: 2009 Pedro Escudero Valdelainos Verdejo Rueda

San Francisco's recent heat wave has left me craving nothing but cold, crisp, bone-dry whites. My recent favorite? The 2009 vintage of Pedro Escudero's Valdelainos Verdejo. If you're a big Sauvignon Blanc drinker, give Spanish Verdejo a try. I promise you won't regret sipping the lesser-known varietal.

This particular wine had a pale yellow-green appearance that reinforced its lemony, flinty nature. The practically weightless wine had splendid aromas of citrus, cantaloupe, and honey. It paired wonderfully with a cup of briny red clam chowder, but was just as easy to enjoy alone. You can find this vintage at Spanish specialty stores, online, or through the Williams-Sonoma wine club. For $13.50, it's a tremendous steal. Have you tried Verdejo?
