One of the co-owners of Bodegas Morca (which is the new sister winery to Bodegas El Nido, but that is for another day), approached us in the fall of 2019 about some extremely high end Verdejo that he was making.
 
It was aged in new Taransaud barrels (remember the T5?) for 8 months, and he said it was a dead ringer for high end California Chardonnay. Price was 35 euros ($42USD)
 
I mean sure, we decided to try it - and the wine really was unbelievable - and it hits all the finer points of high end Chardonnay, without the overbearing weight. Verdejo as a layered texture that is all its own, and this gem was leaving Rombauer, Sonoma Cutrer, Mer Soleil etc. in the dust. Only hiccup, and we explained this to them, was that nobody is buying $50 Verdejo in the US. Full stop. It’s just not happening. (If it is we sure don't know about it).
 
I guess they came prepared for that response, because they said that if we packed it in another label (not the one selling for 35 euro) and committed to a minimum of 400 cases, they could get it to us where we could retail it for $24.99...

We ordered 1,000 cases on the spot.
 
Their team came up with maybe one of the best labels I have seen in awhile (picture above) and the wine finally, after what seems like an eternity of waiting, rolled into our stores yesterday morning.

I have an internal bet that all 1,000 sell in the first 8 weeks. I think it’s that good. I just bought a case, and we sold 82 six packs yesterday before we even got this newsletter out.

For what it is worth, I usually don’t get too fired up about white wine for whatever reason (I really like high end sweet Riesling for instance, and that is a lonely island :), but this wine has me as excited as I have ever been. Spain once again proving that they can bring the thunder on the quality / value scale.
