The Sanz family have been producing quality wines for over 150 years. Run by the fourth generation, Javier Sanz has 104 hectares of vineyard, including the viticultural treasure of the pre-phylloxera vineyard of El Pago de Saltamontes. Despite his ultramodern winery, he maintains that the key to outstanding wine is growing good grapes. He believes in the traditional relationship between the grower and the vine. Wines by Javier Sanz embody a philosophy; a vision. Faithful to their origins, they bear the touch of the grower.
In 2017 the summer was very warm with temperatures reaching up to 40°C at the beginning of June. The first half of August was cooler and allowed for a slow maturation of the berries. The conditions during harvest were ideal.
Javier Sanz's vineyards are laid out in a mosaic of plots and small vineyards all within the Vallaloid municipality of La Seca. The continental climate has a large diurnal temperature range and low humidity. The vines are grown in gravelly, pebbly soils, which are poor in organic matter and have good drainage, the perfect combination for the Vedejo variety. The viticultural processes value quality over quantity and as such the health and vigour of the vineyards are constantly monitored.
Harvest took place in the cool of the night in order to preserve the freshness and aromas in the berries. The grapes were then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats at 15°C to retain the aromatics and purity of fruit.
A clean, fresh, bright wine full of vibrant aromas of pineapple, kiwi, passion fruit, combined with a hint of mineral complexity. Rich and well structured with a pure persistent finish.
A fresh and versatile wine, which pairs beautifully with olives, vinaigrettes, lemon chicken and creamy lighter cheeses.
