This charming blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viura offers a vibrant fruity freshness, with delicate floral aromatics which are carried through on the palate with a pleasingly smooth finish.
The Encantador wines are as charming as their Spanish origins. From the country that gave us Gaudi, Blahnik, Almodovar and Iniesta, we give you...Vino Fantastico! Now you see it, now you don't!! The quirky presentation is a nod to the current trend for a twist of the unconventional, capturing the irony and sense of humour that is the essence of this latest labelling vogue. Yes, it's a bit edgy, it's a bit off the wall, it's a bit bonkers...and if you are not comfortable being edgy, off the wall or bonkers, well, these might not be the wines for you! Meanwhile, an innovative team of winemakers have been busy crafting the quality fruit into wines bursting with fresh flavours and finesse. The Viura-Sauvignon blend is an energizing, thirst-quenching ensemble, all pink grapefruit and honeydew melon, the Rosado is sultry and luscious, the Monastrell is hot and fiery, strutting like a macho young Madrileno. Encantador is made exclusively for Hallgarten Druitt and blended by their buyer Steve Daniel. We think it's good to try something a little off the wall every now and then, one sip and you'll be charmed, we're sure...
The 2014 vintage in La Mancha was reliable and the quality of the grapes was high. After the excesses of the 2013 vintage, the 2014 has been described as more typical for the region and the 2014 wines are fuller bodied with an equilibrium of refreshing acidity.
The soil structure is formed of reddish brown sandy clay, poor in organic material and rich in lime and chalk. The vineyards are located in a continental climate with extreme temperature ranges, with low annual rainfall but the vines do benefit from maximum sunshine exposure.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Viura grapes were vinified separately in stainless steel at cool temperatures to emphasise the wine's soft aromatics. The two wines were then carefully blended to create a deliciously balanced wine with a smooth finish.
Serve chilled, this versatile wine is great with tapas, salads and seafood dishes such as barbequed prawns, sushi and paella.
