Characteristics of Montespina Sauvignon

Montespina Sauvignon is a white wine from the Rueda made by Bodegas Avelino Vegas. It is a varietal Sauvignon Blanc.

The Sauvignon Blanc has adapted perfectly to the estates of the winery. The hardness of the continental climate and poor soil give Montespina Sauvignon great complexity and balance.

The grapes come from 45 hectares of vineyards owned by the winery in La Seca, Villaverde de Medina and Rueda.

After a very securely controlled ripening, the harvest is done. To prepare Montespina Sauvignon, the latest technologies are used.

The characteristics of the soil and climate make this Sauvignon Blanc totally unlike any other. Bodegas Avelino Vegas was established as a result of the marriage of Avelino Vegas and his wife Isabel in the middle of last century.

Today the second and third generation manage the business, which currently produces wines in five different denominations of origin.

Tasting notes Montespina Sauvignon

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.
Sight Bright straw yellow with some green touches. Nose Notes of tropical fruits on a floral background. Lush aromas. Taste Large and bulky. Very fresh and fruity, very good finish.
Sight Very light golden yellow colour with greenish reflections. Clean and very bright. Nose This new vintage keeps the balance between the fruit, tropical fruit notes, certain citric nuances, fruit with pit and floral and herbaceous notes. Fragrant and pleasant. Taste In the mouth, it shows an agile and unctuous mid-palate marked by a refreshing well-defined acidity, with fruity sensations during all its mid-palate. Medium-length finish with slight bitter final notes which provide seriousness and certain complexity. Pleasant herbaceous hints at retro-olfaction.
Sight Very pale golden yellow colour with greenish reflections. Clean and  very bright. Nose This new vintage maintains the good balance between fruit, tropical fruit, citrus touches, stone fruit and floral and herbal notes. Fragrant and enjoyable. Taste Agile and unctuous on the palate, with a refreshing and well-defined acidity, and fruity sensations from start to finish. Medium-length finish, with slightly bitter notes at the end bringing a seriousness and a certain complexity. Nice herbal notes at retro-olfaction.
Sight Bright straw yellow colour with delicate greenish reflections. Nose Good aromatic intensity. Several grassy notes wrap the expressive notes of fruit. A nice touch of stone fruit and some shy hints of tropical fruit are slowly and subtly released. A very pleasant nose. Taste Thanks to its abundant notes of grass and its good acidity, we can describe this wine as very fresh and light. It has an unctuous, embracing and bulky mid palate. Its long finish leaves very pleasant sensations.  An elegant and serious white wine.
Sight Straw yellow with slight green reflections. Very bright and clean. Nose Very expressive aromas of tropical fruits on a very elegant and persistent floral and herbal background. Taste Wide attack and creamy and fruity mid palate. Very fresh, intense and voluminous wine. Long and very nice finish.
Sight Pale yellow with slight green tone, very bright. Nose Nose displays lush tropical fruit aromas dominate the background on a very elegant, with floral memories from lime and chamomile. Taste In mouth is very wide, especially large, with a palate pleasing and very fresh and fruity finish that invites another drink.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

    Winery Avelino Vegas

    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.
