Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Delicate and pretty with white flowers and a soft acidity, notes of green apple and nectarine. It's a reliable, attractive wine for early drinking and would be delicious with an asparagus, pea and pecorino spaghetti. @wrightwineblog
Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2018 4R over delivers on quality for its price point. Loaded with gorgeous floral, tart tangerine, textured honey and mineral notes on its mid-weight body and refreshing finish. Crafted with Verdejo harvested in Spain’s revered Reuda appellation.

If you have never tasted a wine made with 100% Verdejo grapes, I encourage you to experience the 2018 vintage 4R. Enjoy.

Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Quite an interesting wine, with richness in its fruitiness, herbs and nutty flavours. Its roundness in the mouth is quite appealing - a good wine to enjoy with heavier dishes such as Cornish hen, quail, or even steak tartar. It has very delicate floral notes - white peach, herbs and fennel. The body is medium, the weight is medium to full, and it has fresh acidity to balance it. The texture is elegant and silky - Great for its price point.
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Medium-bodied from Ruedo, Spain, this wine is made from Verdejo grapes. Delicate floral and tropical fruit o the palate and smooth viscosity on the palate. Serve with delicate appetizers and soft, ripe cheeses.
From the Rueda wine region, Cuatro Rayas 4R 2018 Verdejo is a great value, juicy and mouth-watering white wine under $14. Love the subtle honeyed citrus and chalky aromas on the nose. Bright with green apple, white stone fruit and mouth-watering acidity to accompany any fresh seafood dish. - Community Wine Reviews
