Characteristics of Saltimbanqui

Saltimbanqui 2018 is a single-variety white wine from the D.O. Rueda made with the Verdejo variety by Aribau.

Saltimbanqui came from a desire to create a wine with the Aribau identity, a family business with more than 50 years of experience in the wine sector. To do this, they began searching for a good winemaker to take on the project at the end of 2007. They put their trust in Javier Sanz from the beginning, and in 2012 he revealed the wine’s first vintage, through the Aribau Company’s innovative vision. It was young, straightforward and very bright.

The Saltimbanqui grapes come from vines that are born and raised in Rueda. A denomination that is characterised by a Mediterranean climate with a continental influence and gravelly soils. These are some of the best conditions for growing the region’s quintessential variety: Verdejo.

The harvest is carried out when the grapes reach optimum ripeness. After the Saltimbanqui grapes have been selected in the vineyard, they are destemmed in the winery to macerate with the skins for 12 hours. Then only the free-run juice is separated to be racked and fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks.

Saltimbanqui is young and very bright. An easy-to-drink white wine that reminds us how much joy we get from simple, but well-made things.

Tasting notes Saltimbanqui

Saltimbanqui 2018 is an aromatic white wine with intense fragrances of white fruits and tropical fruits and a floral and herbaceous background. On the palate it is dry and refreshing with good acidity and delicate mineral notes.
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 Pale yellow with greenish hues. Clean and bright. Nose Medium-high intensity. Varietal aromas and notes of white fruit. A tropical floral background. Taste Good input. Fruity, light and silky. Good acidity and comprehensive aftertaste.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

    Winery Aribau

    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.
