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 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, crushed and left to soak on the skins 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.
