The Avelino Vegas winery crafts this Montespina Sauvignon from vineyards belonging to the Rueda DO. The winery produces another wine in this region: the well-known Circe. Besides that, it also has a branch in Ribera del Duero, producer of the Fuentespina red wines.
This Spanish white wine is made solely from Sauvignon Blanc.
After the harvest, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

The young white wine Montespina Sauvignon has a pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This varietal Sauvignon Blanc smells of tropical fruit, bitter herbs and, on the background, flowers and citrus.
This young white wine from Rueda is savoury and fruity. This wine by Avelino Vegas has a crisp acidity which, together with some herbal nuances, results in a fresh, lively passage. Some creamy suggestions and a tip of tropical fruit. Medium finish.
