Winemaker Notes

Bright, lifted nose that could very easily be mistaken kiwi, gooseberry, grapefruit zest, "mineral". But this is riper, deeper. Ditto in the mouth. Great depth of fruit and opposing mineral cut. Another wine with a sugar/acid cage match.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The Verdejo grapes for the 2009 Shaya are sourced from both estate vineyards and local growers with vine age ranging from 75-112 years. The wine was barrel-fermented and aged on its lees. Medium straw-colored, if offers up an alluring aroma of baking spices, spring flowers, and peach. On the palate it has a creamy texture, vibrant acidity, and intense flavors leading to a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It is a great value in dry, aromatic white wine that over-delivers in a big way.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Light, bright yellow. Exotic aromas of peach, mango, melon and nutmeg, with a lashing of minerals. Concentrated and tactile, with a sappy, stony quality to its pit and tropical fruit and spice flavors. Offers an attractive mix of richness and energy, finishing bright and long, with lingering minerality and good grip.

Wine Enthusiast

As far as value-priced Ruedas go, this is at the top of the heap. The nose is forward, clean as glass and not too pungent or demanding. Solid as can be across the tongue, with green fruit flavors that shine and don’t force the issue. Crystalline and pure from start to finish.
