The 10 most popular white wines of 2020

1. Enate Chardonnay 234

Bodega Enate is a young winery that has quickly become one of the great representatives of the DO Somontano. The Enate Chardonnay 234 is a fruity and fresh white wine, with balanced acidity. A white that everyone likes!

2. José Pariente Verdejo

Bodega José Pariente is a leader in the DO Rueda, where the Verdejo variety reigns. José Pariente Verdejo is a real best seller and an honest portrait of the variety. With such high quality, this white wine has earned its place as one of our customers’ most sought after and beloved wines.

3. K-Naia

K-Naia is a white wine that offers a lot for very little. This wine is a coupage of the two flagship varieties of the DO Rueda, Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc, and is bright, refreshing and versatile enough to suit every palate.

4. Terras Gauda

Terras Gauda is a white wine that, although usually thought of as an Albariño, is actually a coupage of Galician white varieties with Caiño Blanco and Loureira Blanca alongside the Albariño. With every vintage that passes, Terras Gauda becomes more and more popular thanks to its fruity notes, balanced acidity and pleasant flavour.

5. Lolo

Lolo is a fresh, young and daring Albariño from the DO Rías Baixas. A wine that peaks curiosity through its fun presentation but that also has a lot to offer in terms of flavour. Its casual presentation and fresh youth make it an accessible wine that will bring back sunny summer memories at any time.

6. Protos Verdejo

Protos is a renowned winery in the Ribera del Duero with a great winemaking history when it comes to red wines. Protos Verdejo is proof that they are also capable of making great whites, offering a rounded and fresh Verdejo with balanced acidity that has become a customer favourite. 

7. Mar de Frades

Mar de Frades is a delicate and subtle Albariño with marine touches. A white wine that has a recognised and well-earned reputation. And a fun fact, the label of this wine’s characteristic blue bottle reveals a boat on the waves when the wine reaches the optimum temperature to be enjoyed.

8. José Pariente Sauvignon Blanc

It is not surprising that José Pariente occupies two positions in the Top 10 white wines with his Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc single-variety wines, the two reigning varieties in Rueda. On this occasion, we want to draw your attention to José Pariente Sauvignon Blanc, a balanced and aromatic white wine with an exotic note that you are bound to fall in love with.

9. Viña Zorzal Garnacha Blanca

Viña Zorzal never ceases to amaze. This young project run by the Sanz brothers in Navarra exudes passion for wine. With Viña Zorzal Garnacha Blanca, they have produced an honest and totally expressive, fresh and direct Garnacha Blanca that is worth much more than the price tag.

10. Zárate Albariño

Zárate is one of the oldest wineries in Galicia and a pioneer in the production of Albariño wines. However, it has recently caught people’s attention again and much of that is down to the great winemaker behind their wines: Eulogio Pomares. Zárate Albariño offers all the qualities of a great wine and was awarded 92 Parker points for its last vintage, all for a very reasonable price. Guaranteed good value!
