The Sauvignon Blanc kicks off the harvest at Bodega Cuatro Rayas
Bodega Cuatro Rayas proposes to enjoy the authentic night harvest of the DO Rueda on September 14 and 20 with its Harvest of the stars
La Seca, August 30, 2019.- Bodega Cuatro Rayas, leader of the Rueda Denomination of Origin, began the 2019 harvest last morning with the Sauvignon Blanc, a French variety established in the region since the 1970s and which has a shorter vegetative cycle, making its maturation earlier than those of the other varieties in the area.
José Martín del Campo, technical director of Viñedo de la bodega, confirms that the campaign begins with excellent forecasts: “In the early morning hours of today, the Sauvignon Blanc harvest began with an excellent category and a slightly lower yield compared to other campaigns, but which gives rise to a grape of very good quality and with a slower but very balanced ripening of the fruit. . It is expected to start with the Verdejo variety at least a week from now, so it comes with a little delay compared to previous years ”.
Sauvignon Blanc at Cuatro Rayas Winery
This variety of grape from France and spread throughout the world, began to be planted in the Rueda area to be used in the production of multi-varietal wines. Later, noting the quality of the grape, they began to make monovarietal wines with it and at Bodega Cuatro Rayas we found several references that only work with this grape: Cuatro Rayas Nocturnal Harvest Sauvignon Blanc and Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Sauvignon Blanc. They are two wines made with grapes from a careful selection of estates with vineyards over 30 years old; with an aromatic fruity style that evokes citrus fruits, accompanied by a background of white flowers and a balsamic note reminiscent of peppermint.
