Finca La Colina Sauvignon Blanc

75 cl

Sauvignon was only introduced to Rueda in the 1980’s around the same time Rueda was granted its D.O. status. This is made from a selection of grapes from the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines. It was chosen by El Mundo Vino (an important magazine in Spain) as the Best Sauvignon Blanc from Rueda. A full & unctuous Sauvignon with real varietal character. If tasted blind it could easily be mistaken for a very good French Sauvignon (in our opinion!).
