100% Verdelho, Suisun Valley
We met Luis Moya, wine importer and winemaker/owner of Urbanite Cellars, at our shop in October 2013 and tasted his delicious Caliberico white wines. Caliberico, now in its third vintage, originally was a blend of three grapes including Verdelho. In the 2012 vintage Caliberico is available for the first time in a 100% Verdelho version as well as an all Albariño version. Caliberico Verdelho uses the traditional grape of the small island of Madeira, Portugal. Light textured and expressive, Caliberico Verdelho shows notes of citrus and melon with floral aromas.
