Exit the WineTubeMap at the lesser-known Rueda stop and try this barrel aged, richer, riper style.
This is not a standard Rueda, it’s a very classy, rich, warm white. If we’re talking tube station exits this is at the full-bodied exit of Rueda, not the light, crisp, summery style that you so often find. It has a creaminess to it that acts like velvet and would make an excellent wine to go with food – especially pastry based items.
It does still have the citrus, kiwi flavours that you find in all rueda and a hint of herbaceous but it’s altogether riper, with a tropical melon flavour that makes it feel a bit sweeter.
Bodegas Naia who make the Naiades do also make a lighter style, which is also delicious so if this is the wrong exit for you, try the K-Naia.
NB This wine was part of WineLab and selected in collaboration with Vino.
Travellers of the WineLab will have tasted it as the first wine on the Velvet station.
