This is the second vitage of a Spanish white wine produced by Crápula Wines, a winery known for its intense and wonderfully affordable red wines.
This single varietal Sauvignon Blanc was produced by winemaker Gabriel Martínez Valero from a selection of low-yielding vineyards located at an altitude of 700 metres and planted on very poor limestone soils.
The grapes of Crápula White were destemmed and macerated for 10 hours at a low temperature.
After that, they were pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Finally, this young white wine from Jumilla was clarified with egg whites and delicately filtered.
Drink Crápula White 2017 until 2021.
The wine Crápula White has a clean, bright, straw yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This white wine from Jumilla shows a typical Sauvignon Blanc character. Aromas of herbs and vegetables combine with aromas of tropical fruit, flowers, some dim mineral notes and, yes, the expected "cat pee" remembrance.
Fresh, savoury and very nimble on the palate. This white wine by Crápula Wines leaves some intense remembrances of citrus and flowers. It has a good acidity and a long finish reminiscent of herbs.
|Our personal opinion||
