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.
