Varietal Sauvignon Blanc
Aromatic and rounded: the success of the Sauvignon Blanc in our region
It is almost 30 years since vineyards in Rueda first planted the Sauvignon Blanc, giving us today a clean, cool and distinguished wine with an exceptional gamut of vegetal, tropical fruit and mineral notes.
The grapes for this wine come from some of the first vineyards of Sauvignon Blanc planted in Rueda, almost 30 years ago. The soil, composed of the characteristic platform of loose stones, is very poor in organic matter and has limestone outcrops on the higher levels.
After destemming, the grapes were macerated for about 10 hours at a low temperature before pneumatic pressing. In order to conserve the primary aromas, the alcoholic fermentation was also carried out at low temperature. It was then kept on the lees until clarification, before being subjected to cold treatment and filtration.
Pale yellow with greenish hues, its aromatic expression is an exceptional combination of vegetal notes and exotic fruits, memories of freshly cut grass and a hint of minerality.
In the mouth it has the fresh clean elegance typical of Sauvignon Blanc. This is a highly intense wine, structured, persistent and rounded.
Ideal with shellfish — mussels, cockles, clams, oysters… — and cooked seafood: langoustines, prawns, shrimps, crabs and so on. It also goes well with all kinds of fish, fresh cheeses and serrano ham.
