Blume Sauvignon Blanc is made in our Pagos del Rey winery, located in the province of Valladolid, Rueda. It is made from the international variety Sauvignon Blanc introduced from France.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Rueda is a wine producing region in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, on the high plateau of Castile and León, right between two of Spain’s most famous red-wine producers: Ribera del Duero and Toro, and just on the North-West of Madrid. The river Duero flows through this region from East to West. Rueda was the first Denominación de Origen to be certified in the Region of Castile and León (1980). This high plateau is characterised by a typical continental climate featuring long cold winters, a brief spring season, and dry harsh hot summers
Light yellow with green hues. The bouquet is intense with aromas of juicy peaches, mangoes and papayas, paired with dried herbs and hay. The palate is fresh, fruity and lively with a light and crisp finish.
A perfect companion to many fish dishes, seafood or medium aged goats cheese. Perfect from home- grilled vegetables, and salted green peas with ham.
Between 8-10 º C
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested at night in early October. This cooler temperature allows the grapes to retain their wonderful aromatic characters. After crushing, the must is left for maceration with the skins for 6 to 8 hours in cool temperatures to obtain maximum varietal expression. The fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks at 14-16º C in order to achieve maximum expression of flavourings. The winemaking process includes careful handling at every stage.
