Acantus Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Acantus Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Ref: A079917

The wine is of a characteristic golden colour and has a classic sauvignon nose of gooseberries underscored by honey and acacia blossom notes. It has good balance between fruit and acidity on the palate and a long persistent finish. Clean and refreshing, and at only 11.5% abv it can easily be drunk on its own as an aperitif or accompany fish and seafood dishes.

Bodegas Olarra is located on the outskirts of Logroño, right in the heart of the Denominación de Origen Calificada Rioja and within the prestigious Rioja Alta sub-district.

Since it was founded in 1973, Olarra has been characterised by the beauty and complexity of its facilities, known as the Cathedral of Rioja, with its unique 'Y' shaped ground plan, as well as its 111 hexagonal "egg box" domes.

This bodega has been able to combine the most modern winemaking techniques with the traditional vinification and ageing processes of Rioja, creating wines which have been conceived according to strict quality standards.

In Olarra they believe that it is by taking perfect care of the grapes that a fine wine is made, so every detail is supervised to the maximum. In making its wines, Bodegas Olarra only uses those berries which meet a set of strict conditions. Currently, Olarra offers several labels to the market and behind each of these is a wine with its own identity. Its star wines are the red oak-aged wines.

All in all, a wide range of wines whose quality has been acknowledged in the world's most important contests.
