Product Description
Details

An original Spanish sweet white wine made by José Pariente, Apasionado de José Pariente is crafted from over 30-year-old Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

The grapes come from a single estate belonging to DO Rueda. The first Sauvignon Blanc ever planted in Verdejo territory, it grows in limestone soils with pebble stones located on the highest area of the region.

This Apasionado sweet wine is made from overripe, particularly high-acidic grapes that were exactingly selected during the harvest.

After a cold maceration, they were gently pressed and fermented with its lees for a period of 5 months. Clarified and cold filtered, Apasionado de José Pariente 2017 was finally bottled in 50 cl. flasks.

A limited edition sweet white wine, it should be enjoyed within the next 3 years.
