Rueda Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Yellow green colour. The nose shows a interplay of green plants and exotic fruits. Nice mineral with hints of cut grass. Not a screamy SB but very elegant. Great taste, fresh and great acidity. The finish is strong with a lot of structure, round and long.
Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol content: 13º
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.
