Dominio de Fontana Sauvignon Blanc Verdejo 2020
Dominio de Fontana Sauvignon Blanc Verdejo
This Dominio de Fontana wine is refreshing, expressive and comes from the DO Ucles.
Sauvignon Blanc provides grassy and gooseberry notes. Conversely the Verdejo adds notes of white pepper and fennel. Ultimately this makes the wine textured and aromatic, with an authentic palate.
Furthermore, this wine is rounded off by a crisp mineral finish.
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.
Because of these growing conditions, the wines produced are of great purity, freshness and varietal expression.
Uniquely, the estate is managed as an integrated ecosystem. This includes hundreds of century old Quercus oak trees, and the vines are cultivated sustainably.
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.
Moreover these high-altitude vines are sustainably cultivated, without the use of pesticides and minimal organic treatments are employed.
Similarly, each variety is carefully managed according to the different soils and growing conditions.
In order to achieve perfectly balanced vines, that are capable of expressing both the character of the variety and the terroir.
The two varieties are picked and fermented separately. They are then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 16°C.
Afterwards the proportions are carefully blended. Each vintage achieves an intriguing combination of the more full-bodied, intense Sauvignon Blanc with a fresher, more austere Verdejo.
Finally after blending, the wine remains on its fine lees for a minimum of three months. Ultimately this creates a fuller, rounder texture.
