Characteristics of Javier Sanz Sauvignon Blanc
Javier Sanz Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine from Rueda produced by the Javier Sanz winery. The winery is located in the town of La Seca, Valladolid.
As the name suggests, this white wine is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from old vines over 25 years old planted in Camino Real.
Sauvignon Blanc, which was brought 40 years ago from France, has adapted perfectly to the rocky terrain of the estate.
As for the climate of the area, its strong continental influence is remarkable with temperature fluctuations between day and night (which sometimes reach a 20°C difference) which contribute to the balanced acidity of the grape and a good concentration of aromas.
The development of Javier Sanz Sauvignon Blanc begins with a mechanical night harvest, and integrated destemming.
In the winery, one criomaceration is performed, ie vinification at low temperature that lasts for about 12 hours.
Subsequently traditional vinification is conducted with a fermentation in stainless steel at a temperature below 15 ° C. Furthermore, in order to preserve the maximum aromas, the fermentation takes place very slowly.
The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.

When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.
Javier Sanz is the example of tradition in viticulture. An example of meticulous work on the land, and enhancement of the personality of a territory with the recovery of almost extinct and pre-phylloxera varieties. An example of the production of red wines in a sea of whites, of creating wines capable of expressing the land where they come from. And also an example of knowing how to manage a unique winery that, in a few years, has become one of the most emblematic ones of our country.
