FAQ: Verdejo? Don’t you mean Verdelho?
ANSWER: No, we mean Verdejo, one of Spain’s major white varieties, which is a bright, clean, dry white style with appealing fruit and refreshing acidity.
FAQ: Doesn’t Verdejo only come from Rueda?
ANSWER: Spain is a big country with great potential and plenty of room for experimentation. It wasn’t so long ago it was thought Tasmania couldn’t make great Australian Cabernet Sauvignon – Langton’s ‘Excellent’ Classification of Australian Wine says otherwise!
Radio Boka is from Valencia. You’ve probably heard of Valencia in reference to its famous oranges, or its famous dish, the Paella. There’s also a raucous festival in Valencia, The Falles, known worldwide for its all night revelry. But Valencia also produces a very fine Verdejo. The Verdejo in Radio Boka grows mostly on the mountainside, on head pruned vines 25-50 years old. Altitude with attitude. The soils vary from dark miocene to chalky lime. Balmy days, brisk nights. What’s not to like for a vine living in Valencia?? The people from Valencia make a point of getting the most out of life – so do the wines.
