D.O. La Mancha / Viña San Juan
Viña San Juan Sauvignon Blanc Airen Viura
Our top quality Viña San Juan white is a special blend of three international grape varieties. The label on Viña San Juan bottles depicts the bonfires during the celebration of Noche de San Juan (Saint John’s night) at Toledo. The resulting coupage is a real pleasure to our senses: sight, smell and taste. This is a perfect wine to enjoy with a wide range of Spanish gastronomic concepts.
In the former kingdom of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain, we can find the largest vine-growing area in the world with an endless expanse of 300,000 hectares of vineyard. It is also the stomping ground of Miguel de Cervantes’s famous novel, Don Quixote. The huge area covered by this Denominación de Origen borders Valencia and Murcia to the East, and Extremadura to the West, Andalusia to the South and Madrid to the North-West. Wine making began here in Roman times and was widespread during the middle ages. The versatility of this land has allowed for the introduction of a wide variety of international varieties of grape.
Bright yellow with touches of green. This wine has wonderfully fresh aromas of herbs, apple, peach and tropical fruits. Its palate mirrors these flavours with an pleasing long silky finish.
Perfect with tapas and a range of Spanish seafood dishes including fish in sauce or even cheese.
Harvested at night in early September. Cooler temperatures allow the grapes to retain their wonderful aromatic character. Before proper pressing, the run juice with the grapes’ skin is left to macerate for 4 to 6 hours at a low temperature. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 14-15oC. Each grape variety is fermented separately and then blended by our expert winemakers. Modern wine making techniques are employed to produce a delicate wine.
