Ben says

★ Good Wine Copper orange. Sweet nose of tangerines, candied lemon pith, and melon. On the palate the wine is very sweet and indulgent with a mix of candied peel, lemon, raisins, and dates. Limey on the finish.

Ben Franks Wine Tasting Note Producer Profile

About the Producer

Javier Sanz Viticultor has been in the Sanz family for 5 generations of winemakers for over 150 years. Their philosophy is rooted in the conservation of pre-phylloxera vineyards, local grape varieties, and the recovery of varieties that have almost become extinct.

With a passion for the land and with the ethos to intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process. The Verdejo grape, with its great personality, is grown with sustainable winemaking practices in the ancient gravelly pebbles of the Rueda landscape, an area famous for its continental climate with a large diurnal temperature (that’s the difference between night and day temperatures) range and low humidity.

Laticia, Javier’s daughter and next generation caretaker of the vines, is driving sustainable change towards a more organic (accredited) winery whilst preserving the family ethos.
