Castillo Ladera Airen Sauvignon Blanc is a very easy-drinking crisp, dry, fruity wine from the La Mancha region south of Madrid. Citrus fruit nose with a hint of apple and zesty, clean finish.
Castillo Ladera wines are sourced from one of the most advanced bodegas in La Mancha and they combine the traditional varieties of the region with international varieties such as Sauvignon and Syrah. Castillo Ladera represents the very best of modern Spanish winemaking but draws on a tradition that goes back centuries; the result is exceptional value for money and huge drinkability.
The grapes are sourced from a mixture of trellised and bush vines in the Manzanares district of La Mancha- renowned for it's limestone soils. The majority of the grapes are machine harvested at night in order to maintain the acidity and bright, fruit flavours.
This modern, crisp white demonstrates bright citrus characteristics on the nose, while offering deliciously vibrant apple fruit flavours and a zesty twang courtesy of the Sauvignon Blanc on the palate. A long clean finish with hints of grapefruit.
