Palacio Di Vivero Rueda

Posted by

ASDA Extra Special Rueda, a wine crafted from Verdejo grapes sourced from Spain’s Rueda region, is a hidden gem due to its relative obscurity. This dry, sharp and citrusy wine offers great value for money and a pleasing depth of flavour.

Its qualities have been recognised in the IWSC 2022 with a bronze award, and in the IWC and Decanter World Wine Awards in 2023 with silver and bronze medals respectively.

“Punchy lemon and lime zest. Multi-dimensional, herbal and saline note. Good mouthfeel. Fresh, lifted and long.” IWC

“What incredible value! Fresh, mineral, saline and waxy with some smoky reduction, this Spanish white delivers peach and apple flavours accompanied by some floral notes. Textured, dry and fresh.” Decanter

While it may not stand out as a superstar wine for standalone drinking, its price and character makes it a fantastic complement to dishes like white fish or poultry. With a modest price tag of around £6, occasionally reduced by 25%, it provides excellent value for money. It’s also vegetarian-friendly.
