Castelo de Medina Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc rivals the native Verdejo to produce a crisp and herbaceous wine from Rueda.
Castelo de Medina’s offering has picked up numerous awards: Gold in the Spanish CINVE tasting, Silver from Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and Commended in the International Wine Challenge.
Crisp with aromas of tropical fruits; grassy and fresh in the mouth with a lovely smoothness across the palate and finish that is very long with a lingering sensation.
About the Producer
Bodegas Castelo de Medina
Castelo de Medina, founded in 1996 by three wine lovers, is based in the heart of Rueda, in a little village called Villaverde de Medina.
The 190ha of vines, are planted on a plateau 750m above sea level where, sheltered by surrounding mountains, summer temperatures reach 30-40C though with cool nights. The vineyards are situated next to the winery, thus ensuring complete freshness during the harvest.
The winery is built in traditional Castilian architectural style: face brick, stone, wrought iron and wood. It has advanced technological equipment allowing high quality elaboration whilst maintaining the traditional principles of the area, and concentrating on white varietals, notably Verdejo, the native grape of the region, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Progressive and innovative in their approach to wine making, the results are superb; from the crisp racy Vega del Pas wines, to the fuller, more structured whites under the Medina label.
