ELEFANTE CASTILLA BLANCO

12% ABV. (750 ML.)

Place of Origin: Spain, Castilla La Mancha

Vintage: 2016

Grape Varieties: 55% Macabeo, 30% Verdejo, 15% Sauvignon

The vast, high and dry plains of Castilla la Mancha comprise over 50% of Spain’s vineyards. The ancient soils and high altitude ensures the richly flavoured fruit maintains structure and tannin. Vineyards planted on the slopes of mountain ranges in the north and northeast adds elegance to the wines.

A core of Macabeo provides a rich depth of flavour balanced by the cooler climate Viura sourced from Rioja. Verdejo adds fresh aromatics and minerality. A fast and precise vinification with fruit hand-harvested in the early morning is followed by fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel preventing malo-lactic fermentation. Aged on lees for three months in tank.

Following a very hot and dry vintage across Spain, late Autumn rains complicated an already delayed harvest. The rains performed a much-needed task in refreshing the vines and ensuring the fruit maintained vibrancy but also increased disease pressure, reducing yields. Overall high-quality fruit with excellent balance was received to the winery.
