This white wine is from a vineyard in Casa Corones, in Alforins Valley. The soil in this vineyard is white limestone. Its surprising whiteness on the surface gives its name to the entire region (Vall d'Albaida). This limestone layer absorbs moisture like a sponge. When it dries up, the upper layers form a natural barrier, restricting evaporation. This reserve of moisture contributes to the roots development.

Winery Tasting Notes
70% Verdil, 10% Sauvignon blanc, 10% Viognier, 10% Chardonnay
The soul of Blanc d'Enguera is composed mainly of Verdil, an indigenous Alforins variety. It is blended with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. The grapes are harvested at night and we use carbonic ice during the whole process, taking away any risk of oxidation and keeping the finest varietal aromas.
It is aged in new French Oak (50% of the wine, then blended) and is ideally served at 12-15 ºC.
