  • Made with blend of Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc
  • Clean, lingering floral finish
  • Aged in stainless steel

89 Points - "Bodegas Naia’s 2009 Las Brisas is a blend of 50% Verdejo, 30% Viura, and 20% Sauvignon Blanc raised in stainless steel. Medium straw-colored, it offers an amazingly complex perfume for its humble price. Aromas of fresh herbs, spring flowers, baking spices, and white peach lead to a ripe, concentrated, nicely balanced wine that way over-delivers for its price point." -Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate, April 2010.

COMPOSITION: 85% Verdejo, 10% Viura, 5% Sauvignon Blanc

88 Points - "Light yellow. Aromas of wet stones, lemongrass and lime zest, with a hint of jasmine. Juicy and penetrating, with tangy citrus fruit and green apple flavors underscored by a note of talc. Finishes clean, with lingering floral qualities." -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"This wine boasts a wonderful range of refreshing aromas, with lovely intensity. The Verdejo is charmingly complemented by the other two varieties, Viura and Sauvignon, and the result is a balanced, tasty, light wine, with a finish full of fruit that combines a suspicion of exotic fruit and herbaceous and citric touches.

Located on the left bank of the river Duero, this winery dedicates itself to the production of high quality white wines from their meticulously cared for vineyards, which were planted three decades ago in the district of La Seca, one of the most highly renowned areas of the region. Bodegas Naia work with old Verdejo vines planted according to the traditional gobelet system of training.

Eulogio Calleja, an experienced oenologist with extensive knowledge of the region, is the man in charge of operations here."
