VARIETY: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
DESCRIPTION: Montespina is a wine designed by Avelino Vegas S.A. and created by our enologist Jose Manuel Corrales in the area of booming white wines of Spain: D.O. Rueda. Our long experience in this area since 1981 makes us undertake this project with all the guarantees of success.
WINERY AND VINEYARDS: Avelino Vegas S.A. controls 45 Ha of Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, mainly located in the council of La Seca, Villaverde de Medina and Rueda, all of them in the heart of the Denomination of Origin Rueda. We carefully advise winegrowers, specially at harvesting time, when the sanitary control and ripeness have to be exhaustive to preserve the highest quality.
ELABORATION: After a rigorous control of maturation, the harvest 2016 has been made during September. After de-stemming the grapes, a light cold film maceration takes place to increase the aromatic intensity of the must. The grape is soft pressed and the clean must is fermented to a controlled temperature during a period of 20 days. The new wine is racked and remains in contact with the fine lees, providing the wine of more volume and complexity.
TASTING NOTE: Yellow color soft green shades, clean and bright. On the nose subtle, intense flowery aromas together with tropical hints. On the palate it is very fresh and full of flowery and fruity flavours. Long lasting end.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Light seafood, all white fishes, and with pâtés.
