Campo Flores Organic Blanco 2017
- Vegan Suitable
- Certified Organic
RegionLa Mancha, Spain
Light, bright and tropical fruited with meyer lemon and passionfruit. Vibrant acidity and lovely flinty character from the Verdejo. Great with sheep’s cheese, or a fresh pea risotto.
Fruit is picked ripe with flavour and fermented at cool temperatures to enhance aromatics of the Sauvignon Blanc. Verdejo, (not to be mixed with Verdelho), is an uncommon variety almost exclusively grown in the La Mancha region. It ages in the same way that Semillon does, with a smoky minerality forming over time in bottle.
Sit back and relax and let this wine take you away to the sun drenched heart of the Spanish peninsula, where the farmers grow these grapes much as they have done for centuries, cultivating old bush vines on sandy chalk soils, in a hot dry climate they have never used, nor needed chemicals.
CAMPO FLORES, BLANCO ORGANIC, LA MANCHA, SPAIN, 2017
Literally meaning "the most wanted", Vinos Más Buscados is a collection of wines grown and nurtured in the Southern half of Spain, mainly in the area known as La Mancha.
Inspired by Spain's largely untapped fine wine resources, friends, colleagues and Masters of Wine, Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke set off on a journey to find the unsung heroes of Spain, be they regions, growers or winemakers. Fergal's interest in wine terroirs and Giles' instincts for flavour, led them to unearth great Spanish wines whose stories were untold. Each wine is hand made. Each wine reflects the personality of the land and the subtle imprint of man in varying degrees. Now encompassing the terrific value of Castillo del Moro, Centelleo, Torre Solar, and Te Quiero and the organic credentials of Campo Flores, Vinos Más Buscados is a reflection of all that is best in modern Spanish wine making.
Working with farmers in Cuenca who grow grapes much as they have done for centuries, cultivating old bush vines on sandy chalk soils, in a hot dry climate they have never used, nor needed chemicals.
We select low yielding vineyards and ripe fruit to create a wine suitable for any occasion. The vineyards are closely monitored so grapes are picked at their best and the state of the art winery is well equipped with the most modern winemaking machinery to create fantastic wines.
