Wine of Rueda, Spain

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans

Sauvignon White Spanish Wine.

This wine is made from the French Sauvignon Blanc grape, cultivated by Marqués de Riscal in Rueda since 1974. High in aromatic intensity, it reveals ripe fruit and hints of citrus, pineapple and grapefruit. On the palate a crisp and fresh attack with mineral notes is followed by a long herbaceous finish. It is fermented for 20 days in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of between 13 and 16°C.

In 1972 Vinos de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal became the driving force behind the setting up of the Rueda appellation, making fresh, crisp and fruity wines to satisfy a new trend in international taste. This new style of wine making could only be achieved in wineries equipped with the most modern technology, ensuring that all the aromas enclosed in the grapes were preserved. Continuous evolution and innovation has enabled Marqués de Riscal to harness the vineyards' full potential.

Grape Variety

Sauvignon Blanc

Vinification Details

After a period of cold maceration, pressing and fining of the juice, the must is left to ferment slowly at a controlled temperature, so as to protect the primary aromas which are so peculiar to this variety. Once fermentation is complete, the wine remains in contact with its fine lees in order to increase the sensation of volume in the mouth and to improve its capacity for ageing.

History
