Bodega Gótica have been producing wine in the municipality of Rueda for several generations.

– Where there is no wine, there is no love –
The Estate is divided into 4 plots which were planted out between 1983 and 2001. Their philosophy is to innovate, and their objective is to offer a quality product based on the excellence of their work.
The first commercial vintage was in 2004 with the production of wines from 3 grape varieties, Verdejo, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, with which they continue to produce excellent white, rosé and red wines.
The grape harvest is at night and by machine. All grapes are sourced from Estate owned vineyards. The temperature of the fermentation process varies from 8º-14ºC in order to maximise the vibrancy and aromatics of each grape variety.
Careful vinification takes place to maximise and protect the characteristics that Sauvignon Blanc offers when produced in DO Rueda. Fermented at cooler temperatures and for longer than usual to enhance the wines backbone and aromats.
Straw yellow in colour with lemony-green hues, leaving tears (legs, depending on one’s mood) on the glass thanks to its oily consistency. On the nose you’ll find hints of lime blossom and grapefruit which are complimented by tropical papaya. It is enveloping on the palate as it passes through the mouth with a fresh note of acidity, frosted/candied citrus rind and harmonious balance.
Grilled and fried fish – think grilled sardines, sea bass or calamari or even grilled octopus.
Best for drinking in its youth to capture its full vibrancy.
