Characteristics of Apasionado de José Pariente
Apasionado de José Pariente is a sweet wine from Rueda made by Bodegas Jose Pariente. This is a varietal Sauvignon Blanc wine.
The grapes are collected in a single vineyard, one of the first of its kind to be planted in Rueda, over 28 years ago. The soil in which the grapes are grown, a typically boulderous land, is poor in organic matter and limestone, which is typical of lands at this altitude. The vineyard focus on getting ripe grapes. Clusters maintain a high degree of acidity.
On the other hand, the fact that they have various pruning practices in the vineyard allows grapes of low production but high quality. In the winery, this is thoroughly checked. The maceration occurs at very low temperatures, which facilitates the preservation of the primary aromas. After a lightweight tire pressing, lees are worked over five-months in order to get a very structured flavour. The wine, once clarified, is left in a cold environment and filtered. Apasionado de José Pariente is the result of the concern to develop an innovative sweet wine, away from traditional approaches.

Super safe packaging

The D.O. Rueda is a denomination spanning across Castilla y León, along the River Duero and its tributaries. It is mainly white wines that are produced in this D.O., and Verdejo grapes are by far the most popular variety. With hints of flowers, fruit, scrub herbs and very fine aromas, these grapes give the wine a very strong personality.
Bodegas José Pariente is synonymous with Verdejo grapes, a variety autochthonous to the D.O. Rueda with which this cellar produces excellent white wines. Tradition, modern facilities and unbridled passion have converted this cellar into a point of reference within the Rueda.
