El Perro Verde is a classic Verdejo. Born in the also classic area of Valladolid and with the typical aromas of an unoaked and well-made verdejo: white flowers, freshly cut grass, fennel and the characteristic bitter finish.
Its author, Lorenzo Cachazo, has turned this Verdejo into a very popular white wine. El Perro Verde is part of Uvas Felices, the successful project of VilaViniteca, the well-known Barcelona wine distributor.

Drinking and storing
Take the bottle out of the fridge, wait for it to rise a couple of degrees so that the aromas can show through, keep it in an ice bucket with ice or in a cooler, serve and enjoy. This wine is really easy to interpret. Drink it in its youth, in its first two years.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
My dad always orders this when we eat out in our favourite restaurant in Spain and we never complain. We have enjoyed it at home with Vinissimus, but TBH other there are other Verdejo's that we prefer
One of the best
This is a classic example of an intense, fresh Verdejo from Rueda. It has a touch of minerality and is remarkably complex. Not the cheapest Verdejo by any means, but well worth the money.
Bright and fruit driven
Bright, fruit driven Verdejo. Crisp and tangy, very clean. Not hugely complex but no off flavours and well balanced. The ideal wine for simple fresh shellfish.
Very nice and mineral
An excellent example of a Verdejo from Rueda. Less pithy grapefruit flavours than some, with rather more mineral complexity. A good buy.
Favourite summer drinking rueda
Had my first Perro Verde in Barcelonetta a few years ago. I always associate it with good weather and summer drinking.
