    Winemaker Notes

    Pale straw color with greenish hints. Fresh, fruity aromas of apples and pears. Crisp and fruity with a well-balanced creamy texture. Particularly refreshing and dry.

    The vineyards are located on slopes overlooking the Mediterranean sea, where ancient olive trees grow among the vines. High inland mountains protect the vines from the harsher continental climate, producing intense and fully mature grapes, while sea breezes maintain some freshness.

    Blend: 60% Airen, 40% Sauvignon Blanc

    Altos d'Oliva, Spain
    Named after a high vineyard area where the soil is so poor that only grapevines, olive groves and nut trees thrive, these wines benefit from a warm and sunny climate that gives great fruit intensity and richness on the palate. The winemaking is clean and modern in the best senses of the term.

    Altos d’Oliva is made at Reserva de la Tierra with input from Long Wines throughout all the winemaking process. Located in Les Borges del Camp, Tarragona, around 20km from the Mediterranean coast and run by a family with roots in Mendoza, Argentina. Chief winemaker Meritxell Vila is highly experienced with a degree in Enology and Agricultural Engineering. Her work experience at wineries all over the world has given her an international perspective.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

    Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

    Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

    Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
