Characteristics of Impromptu Sauvignon Blanc

Impromptu Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine made in Utiel-Requena by Bodegas Hispano+Suizas. As the name suggests, it is a varietal Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes come from old vines from vineyards owned by the winery. The vineyards are of a low yield, which give a high quality grape planted in limestone-clay soilsand exposed to a continental climate with Mediterranean influences.

The harvest is done manually, and is performed in the morning at peak hours to maintain the freshness of the grapes until their arrival at the winery. The transfer of the grapes is done in small boxes of 15kg, which help them arrive at the winery in the best possible conditions. Once in the winery, the grapes are kept for 3 days at -10 ° C in cold storage, trying to get a great extraction of aromas and flavours by breaking the cell wall of the grape.

The grapes are destemmed and squeezed to obtain a paste which is placed into stainless steel tanks and left to marinate for more than 16 hours at 0 °C.

After the soaking, a slight pressing using a pneumatic press must apply. This wine is decanted for 24 hours to clean it of impurities.

The fermentation of this wine occurs in new American oak barrels of 400 litres at a temperature of 14ºC.

At the end of fermentation, Impromptu Sauvignon Blanc stays with its lees until bottling. Impromptu Sauvignon Blanc is not filtered, so there may be precipitates.

D.O. Utiel-Requena

Winery Hispano-Suizas

The D.O Utiel-Requena has in recent years made real progress in forming its own identity, promoting the use of the red Bobal grape variety, not only because of the vast area it covers, but also because of its oenological potential, with many wineries and producers making great strides in the development and cultivation of this variety. As a result of this hard work, the region is now producing wines with extraodinary organoleptic qualities that perfectly transmit the character and personality of the terroir of the Utiel-Requena region.
