Calamar is a classic, premium expression of the Verdejo grape variety: aromatic, herbaceous, fresh and elegant. It is made for us in Rueda, home of the Verdejo varietal, where the hot days and cool nights produce perfect acidity levels. Calamar is a high-level Verdejo which year after year has won medals in international competitions. It’s made from a high percentage of grapes from very old vines grown in stony soil and its lees have been worked intensively by the winemaker to extract maximum aroma and flavour. It’s not always easy to find the perfect wine for seafood but this is a perfect match, hence its name Calamar (Spanish for squid). It’s also an excellent aperitif and is great for accompanying rice dishes, pasta and poultry. - Winemaker's Notes

Varietal: Verdejo
Verdejo produces a fresh crisp white with beautiful floral aromas, and notes of peach and apricot, balanced by crisp acidity.

Country: Spain
With more area under vines than any other country, it ranks third in terms of quantity of wine produced. The range of its wines is a reflection of the country's regional climatic diversity ranging from the rich and sumptuous reds of the hot and arid Ribera del Duero to the light, crisp whites of the cool Atlantic region of Galicia and Basque Country. For some of the country's best reds, try the regions of Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and Murcia. Spain is also responsible for some of the world's finest fortified and dessert wines, the finest of which come from the town Jerez (Sherry), in Andalucía.

Region: Rueda


Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
