Technical notes: Mar de So Blanc was hand harvested early in the morning. It has taken special care to keep whole grains and avoid oxidation and to maintain the grape fresh to their tanks. Both varieties were separately macerated for 2 days before being pressed. The pressing is lightweight and was naturally decanted using cold. After the racking, the must is fermented in steel tanks with rigorous control of temperature that will not exceed 17 º C during the 17 days of fermentation. The wine is settled, with a slight residual sugar content.

Tasting Notes: Light yellow hue. Fresh and intense nose ensembles pommel citrics with passion fruit and apricot. Results fleshy and long in mouth with a white flower nectar reminder.

Vineyard: The grapes come from vineyards Merseguera located in Titaguas (Alto Turia), located 900 meters above sea level. Limestone terrain. Sauvignon Blanc plots come from Vall dels Alforins, clay soil.

Weather: 2010 was a very good year for white varieties, introducing a cool spring and heavy rainfall in summer and a gradual entry up to a warm late August with maximum temperatures around 35 º C. The rains respected our harvest and began on September 17th. In Titaguas rains were scarce in March and April. Abundant rainfall in May. 180 mm were recorded until harvest date. In the ValldelsAlforins, we had a rather dry year, although rain spread out over time that kept the earth with a good seasoning (precipitation up to 165mm harvest date). Slight problems of mildew in some early redvarieties.
