2009 Ossian Verdejo

Apparently from 100 year old vines, fermented and aged in French barrels according to the label.

Medium gold color. Fresh neutral aromas with hints of casaba and asian pear. The palate has a lovely texture, moderately rich, nicely balanced, almost a little oily. The flavors are quite neutral. The overall impression is of a nicely concentrated, well balanced wine that is somewhat lacking in flavor. I paid $19. I don’t regret it, but won’t be buying again. I’ve had Verdejos with more character for less money. Rated 86.5
