Protos – 22/06/2012

Verdejo 2011
Very vibrant aromatic, characteristic of the variety, sweaty concentrated passionfruit. Plenty of fruit and generosity on the palate, fresh easy, balanced, pretty good for 800,000 bottles per year. Simple yes but not bad at all. A bit of green grassy notes.

Barrica Verdejo 2010
Toastier vanilla lanolin with some richer fruit notes. Fuller body and texture but still very fresh simple and fruity. Slightly more character, but for the most part good quality commercial wines. A touch of creaminess and caramel notes, a hint of sweet spice notes. Lost the same aromatic compounds.
