The Sauvignon Blanc of Las Veletas comes to crown a line of top quality wines, with a fresher variety than its red similes.

Harvest notes:

Season 2016-2017 was a low production year. The low temperatures of frost during September and October made a delay in to the sprout, that helpfully allowed the vineyard to be not affected by the high temperatures in January and February. These high temperatures generate forest fires in a big part of the main valley. This punctual vineyard, located at 500 masl, was not affected by the smoke, anticipating harvest in one week compared to last year.
