Product Description

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

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 2018 was finally bottled in 50 cl. flasks.

This delicious sweet white wine has a very limited production.

Classy Verdejo. An Understated and yet savoury wine.

Sweet Verdejo. Herbal, smooth, tart and sweet. Quite special.
