Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
Javier Sanz's vineyards are laid out in a mosaic of plots, farms and small vineyards all
within the Valladolid municipality of La Seca. Painstaking work takes place in the
vineyard to ensure the best quality grapes are grown. The plot is planted with bush
vines, keeping the grapes close to the ground allowing them to ripen at night due to
the heat retention of the soil, while protecting them from the excessive heat and
sunlight during the day. Resistant to weather and disease, these vines are labour
intensive to harvest. They grow well in the gravelly pebble soils, which are poor in
organic matter and have good drainage. The continental climate, with its large
diurnal temperature swings, sees the high daytime temperatures tumble by up to 20
degrees at night. The cold winters and rains in spring and autumn help the grapes
to reach the characteristic acidity Verdejo is known for.
Winemaking
Javier Sanz's philosophy is to intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process
and they engage in sustainable winemaking practices. The grapes were carefully
harvested by hand and crushed. Maceration on the skins took place at a low
temperature for several hours. The grapes were then pressed and the juice was
settled for a period of 24 hours. Once clear, a slow fermentation took place in
stainless steel vats at temperatures of below 15°C, using the grapes' indigenous
yeasts. The low fermentation temperatures preserved the fruity aromatics. The wine
was cold stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
Vibrant varietal notes of sweet grapefruit and pineapple, combine with anise, fennel
and floral notes. Bone dry with a crisp, refreshing acidity and a lively finish.
Serving Suggestion
A fresh and versatile wine, serve chilled as a wonderful apéritif but also accompanies
salads with vinaigrettes, olives and other sharp foods. Perfect with seafood, ceviche
and lightly seasoned white fish.
