Tasting Note

A crisp, aromatic blend showing intense and expressive aromas of grassy and gooseberry notes from the Sauvignon Blanc with touches of fennel and white pepper from the Verdejo. Concentrated and textured on the palate, with an uplifting refreshing mineral finish.

Producer Note

Dominio de Fontana produces superb single estate wines from the DO Uclés, Central Castile. The estate is located in one of the most northern and highest areas of Central Castile, with the vineyards situated at 700 to 900 metres above sea level. The ideal growing conditions at this altitude produce wines of great purity, freshness and varietal expression. The estate is managed as an integrated ecosystem, which includes hundreds of century old Quercus oak trees, and the vines are cultivated sustainably. 50% of the vineyard is grown organically and Dominio de Fontana is working towards 100% in 1019. These are authentic wines with a sense of place and a distinctive Spanish personality.

Vineyard

This wine is produced exclusively from the selected parcels of La Ensancha & Cerrasol in the Dominio de Fontana estate; in DO Uclés, Central Castile. Both parcels are certified organic from the 2017 vintage. These high-altitude vines are sustainably cultivated, without the use of pesticides and minimal organic treatments are employed. Each variety is carefully managed according to the different soils and growing conditions, in order to achieve perfectly balanced vines, capable of expressing both the character of the variety and the terroir.

Winemaking

The two varieties were picked and fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 16°C. The proportions are carefully blended each vintage to achieve an intriguing combination of the more full-bodied, intense Sauvignon Blanc with a fresher, more austere Verdejo. After blending, the wine remained on its fine lees for a minimum of three months for a rounder, fuller texture.

Serving Suggestion

With lots of vibrant fruit this makes an ideal aperitif; or partner with light salads, smoked salmon or with chicken dishes in a light sauce
