Finca San Blas
Situated in the heart of our beautiful estate is the timeless and elegant French style châteaux. The wine making is both natural and organic with the winery itself as the nucleus which creates the harmony and balance: Our grapes are carefully and meticulously selected and hand-picked, then organised in 10kg boxes. Finally, taking advantage of the gentle slope of the winery floor, the grapes fall naturally into the tanks. This traditional process is considered a fundamental basis of our wine making. Winemaker Nicolas Sanchez, a specialist of the Bobal grape variety, is Professor of Viticulture at the School of Viticulture and Enology of Requena and the Polytechnic University of Valencia. He has set challenges and innovated where no cellar had dared before, planting new varieties unknown in the area, implementing processing methods ever used in the region

RATING: Best in Show - 96 Decanter World Wine Awards - Best Dessert Wine of the Year Beautifully honeyed and ripe Sauternes-like nose of peach, grape seed, pineapple, passion fruit, saffron, marzipan and tangy marmalade notes. The brilliant jab of wonderfully fresh acidity on the palate cuts through the honey and spice, butterscotch, mango and toffee and leads to a great length. It pairs well with bleu cheeses, foie gras, pates, fresh fruit, nuts and the like. Or, on its own.
