The Lot #8: Verdejo (said "ver-day-ho") is our second wine made by Spanish sisters Ruth and Ana de Andres. It has all the hallmarks of their style: quintessentially Spanish, full of fruity flavour and begging to be shared with friends.

If you step into a tapas bar in Northern Spain and order a glass of white wine, they’ll assume you mean Verdejo. It’s the wine the locals drink. Meaning "green" in Spanish, expect pineapple, passionfruit and lime alongside an elegant, fresh acidity.

Packed with pineapple, passionfruit and lime alongside an elegant, fresh acidity, this Verdejo is Northern Spain's best kept secret. Laylo's resident Master of Wine, Clem Yates, describes it as a perfect combination of "pear drops and zippy acidity".

It's delicious as an aperitif, perfectly chilled. But pair it with Padron Peppers and fresh seafood, and it really sings! No wonder the locals keep it for themselves.

Ruth & Ana de Andres are two Spanish sisters whose love of wine turned into a family business. They make delicious parcels of wine from across Spain, each of which perfectly encapsulate the very best each region has to offer.

Amongst Castilla y León’s “sea of red varietals” it’s Verdejo that has captured their imaginations. It’s a grape that only thrives in the region’s specific climate and crumbly limestone soil… but is used to create expressive, crowd-pleasing drops.

There was one element of the Lot #8: Verdejo design which was a no-brainer - its colour palette. The word Verdejo comes from “verde” in Spanish, meaning green. And although wine buffs believe this refers to the savoury “green” flavours in the wine’s distinctive taste, traditional Verdejo labels are almost always emerald-hued.

Like Ruth & Ana’s Lot #1: Tempranillo, the box design takes inspiration from the tiled tapas bars of Northern Spain. But this time, the tiles are smashed and rearranged into a Gaudi-esque mosaic. Taking something old and creating a new, beautiful alternative. Sounds familiar, hey?

Some of the best wine I've drunk in recent years. Add to this the fact that it stays fresh for 6 weeks and it's a winning combination.

Quick delivery and really lovely wine. I can't comment on it lasting 6 weeks as mine only lasted 3 but the last glass tasted as good as the first.
