Exotically perfumed expressive bouquet of pear white peach and melon with toasted nuts and anise adding complexity. Dry and focused on the palate displaying bitter fruit skin lime and herb flavors. This was initially a bit clenched but fleshed out with air finishing with excellent clarity and lingering citrus and pear flavors. These vines are reportedly between 80 and 100 years of age.

Bodegas Naia's two entry level wines are fine values noted on the Best Buy chart at the end of this report.

Bodegas Naia's two entry level wines are fine values noted on the Best Buy chart at the end of this report. The barrel-fermented 2006 Naia Des is 100% old-vine Verdejo sourced from ungrafted 80- to 100-year-old vines. The nose is slightly toasty but the fruit comes through with plenty of citrus mineral and floral notes. The oak treatment seems to have resulted in a creamier texture. The wine is nicely balanced medium long and may evolve for 1-2 years although it can be enjoyed now.
