Product Description
Details

Produced by Selección César Múñoz, Cienfuegos is a Spanish white wine made from Albarín, Verdejo and Godello. The native, recovered variety Albarín comes from 30-year-old vines located north of Valladolid. The latter ones are selected from very old vineyards planted in rocky soils on the southern border of the DO Toro

The grapes were harvested by hand in late September, just before becoming overripe. After being destemmed, they were separately macerated in stainless steel tanks. After a gentle pressing, the free-run juice of this white wine from Castilla y León was transferred into new, 225-litre French oak barrels, where it was fermented and then aged for 11 months on its lees.

Finally, Cienfuegos 2018 was bottled.

Limited production. Great ageing potential.

Additional Information
Appearance

Clean and bright, the white wine Cienfuegos has a pale yellow colour with some golden glints.

Nose

This original Crianza white wine smells of white fruit and flowers, with a spicy touch of vanilla, cedar and cumin over an intense smoky background.

Palate

Creamy and mouth-coating, this white wine from César Muñoz balances excellently the fruit and the oak. Great acidity and long finish with white fruit underpinned by a dim mineral layer.

Our personal opinion

A surprising blend -and a highly successful one at that. Cienfuegos 2018 is rich and full of nuance.
