Spain’s Utiel-Requena region is known for rustic reds; this new-wave Sauvignon Blanc shows it can produce refined whites, too.
What You Need To Know
Ambitious vintners all over Spain are creating thrilling wines in formerly forgotten regions like Bierzo and Utiel-Requena, the source of this Sauvignon Blanc. Dominio de la Vega is a young winery created by three friends and business partners, Fermín Pardo, Emilio Expósito and Álvaro Faubel. They purchased a magnificent 19th-century estate, Casa del Conde, which came surrounded by vineyards. Although focused mainly on high-quality cava, Dominio de la Vega produces some still wines, mainly based on local grapes such as Bobal, the region’s flagship red variety. But the team draws on newer plantings of French grapes, too, to produce impressive renditions of international varieties like this Sauvignon Blanc. Its creamy texture comes from three months of aging in French oak barrels; touches of Chardonnay and the native Macabeo variety.
