With his “spring-wine kick” still going strong, Jon Bonné, writing in the San Francisco Chronicle, picked this Spanish white among a number of “fresh, well-weighted, aromatic and complex” wines; everything that should make up a “spring drink”, according to Bonné.

He said: “Rueda is one of Spain’s most consistently frustrating wine regions – its star bid with the Verdejo grape has never quite reached the heights of, say, Albarino. But this winery outside Valladolid has achieved the heights of Verdejo off ungrafted century-old vines. Aged on lees (lias) for some weight, it matches a lime-curd creaminess with the refreshing cucumber and wet stone aspects that make Verdejo such a springtime choice.”

Price: $17
