- Other Info:
- Located on the left bank of the river Duero, this winery dedicates itself to the production of high quality white wines from their meticulously cared for vineyards, which were planted three decades ago in the district of La Seca, one of the most highly renowned areas of the region. Bodegas Naia work with old Verdejo vines planted according to the traditional gobelet system of training. Eulogio Calleja, an experienced oenologist with extensive knowledge of the region, is the man in charge of operations here.
Gently aromatic Verdejo, Viura, Sauvignon blend with aromas of passion fruit, kiwi and guava. Hints of minerality with fresh acidity and a long finish.
- 2010 Vintage: "The Spanish Verdejo grape variety
has a lot in common (both positive and negative)
with sauvignon blanc, with similarly pungent,
tropical flavours and a tendency to be rather samey
from bottle to bottle. However, this lovely example
(which has a little sauvignon blanc in the blend)
stands out. Its very fresh tropical fruit flavours are
offset by a really winning squeeze of citrus and a
measured, cool, snappy finish." David Williams, The
Observer Magazine, 7th August 2011

2013 Vintage: "With bright aromatics of grapefruit,
lime and under-ripe peaches and pears, this is both
refreshing and scented, with grassy notes adding
depth. Good value and ideal house wine material"
Sommelier Wine Awards 2014, Judges Comments
2011 Vintage: "This smells fresh and grassy, but it
is fuller in body than you expect, with quite
voluptuous tinned pear, rhubarb and plum flavours,
and vibrant citrus acidity to bind it all together."Simon Woods, Square Meal Lifestyle Magazine,
