Marques de Irun Verdejo 2008
This Spanish white from Rueda doesn't have the slightly aerated character of most Verdejos. It exhibits a nicely blended peach character, tempered by sufficient acidity, but does slide off into a certain sweetness at the end. At $12.99 it does not compete successfully with similarly priced New Zealand or Argentinian whites.
