    Winemaker's Notes:

    Naia is crafted from the oldest ungrafted vines of Verdejo (90+ years) on earth, and aged for 8 months in French oak after its stainless steal fermentation.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Naia is 100% Verdejo with 12% of the wine fermented and aged sur lie in French oak, 88% in stainless steel. Light gold-colored, it gives up an impressive perfume of baking spices, floral notes, and pit fruits. On the palate it has surprising richness (from the lees aging and the exceptional vintage conditions), terrific concentration, and a lengthy finish. It should drink well for another 3 years.

    Vivid gold. Pear, quince and tangerine on the nose, with notes of green almond and honey adding complexity. Smooth in texture and rather rich for the category, offering deep orchard fruit flavors and a hint of smokiness, likely from the partial barrel-fermentation. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with very good punch and an echo of pear. Not a classic verdejo, but a delicious white wine.

    Nice crisp summery style wine. Had on an evening where 85 (in Austin that's spring), and was both refreshing while solid on the palette. Definitely not buttery or heavy- which is good.

    Tried this after a conversation with a friend regarding different kinds of white wines (alternatives to chardonnay and sauvignon blanc) from around the world. I was not familiar with the Verdejo variety previously, but my friend encouraged me to try it. This Naia is a wonderful fresh citrus'y example of the variety (thanks wine.com for carrying this). Enjoyed this as my evening sipper over two days. Would put it in the same category as an Argentine Torrontas and the other Spanish white, Albarino. Whats not to like!
