Availability: In stock
The Jané Ventura winery presents the third vintage of Sempreviva. This is a young Spanish white wine made from an indigenous variety that, slowly but steadily, has been gaining recognition over the last years.
That variety is Malvasía de Sitges, a grape which bears the name of a well-known coastal town 30 minutes from Barcelona. This variety produces elegant and age-worthy white wines with a very good acidity and a fresh character.
This varietal Malvasía de Sitges organic white wine comes from vineyards located in five estates belonging to the DO Penedès: 2 of them are in La Bisbal del Penedès, 2 in El Montmell and 1 is in Sant Pere de Ribes, a town located in the Garraf area.
Harvested in October, once in the cellar the grapes were cooled, pressed, drawn-off and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, Jané Ventura Sempreviva 2018 was aged on its lees for 6 months.
Incidentally, the name Sempreviva means Strawflower, an intensely coloured yellow flower that blooms from May until late June. If picked at the right moment, it keeps its colour for a long time.
The production of this Penedès white wine totalized just 5,000 bottles.
The white wine Jané Ventura Sempreviva has a clean, bright, pale lemon colour.
This Malvasía de Sitges has a nice bouquet of white flowers over a background of tropical fruit, bitter herbs, citrus and some flinty and mineral remembrances.
This seductive white wine of Jané Ventura is extremely fresh, bone-dry and smooth as silk. Lively remembrances of citrus and tropical fruit, a dash of Mediterranean garrigue, and some salty and mineral remembrances. This Malvasia from Penedès has a crisp acidity and a long, delicious finish.
