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 ultra-modern
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 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 and yields are kept low: severe winter
pruning; debudding and deleafing to help ripening and crop thinning to reduce yields
and maintain high quality fruit. 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. The estate-grown vines are planted 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.
Winemaking
Harvest took place in the cool of the night in order to preserve the freshness and
aromatics in the fruit. The grapes were destemmed, before must extraction took place
via pneumatic press. A long, slow fermentation took place in temperature controlled
stainless steel vats at less than 15°C to retain the aromatics and purity of fruit, lasting up
to four weeks.
Tasting Note

notes combined with a hint of mineral complexity. Tangy and refreshing, with a pure,
persistent finish of juicy pear and delightful gooseberry notes.
