Overview

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

Grape Varieties

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.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Perez-Pardo family comes from the Caroig Massif, a rugged, very mountainous area with deep ravines, broad valleys and a very long tradition of wine making.

It is located in the southwest of the Province of Valencia, in the River Clariano district, which comes under the ‘Valencia’ Designation of Origin.

The Bodega was founded in 1999. Its motivation was that of building up a winery entirely based on our own vineyards, so as to produce wines by our own extensive work, beginning with our vines and ending with the satisfaction of the customers who taste our wines.

At present Bodegas Enguera possesses 160 hectares of its own vineyards, distributed between two specific areas. The first lies in the municipality of Fontanars dels Alforins, where we have approximately 60 hectares in the Casa Corones and Casa Lluch properties. The second is in the municipality of Enguera; there we have some 100 hectares located in various properties, the most important of which are the Antolí, Bañona, Benali, Toñuna and Venta Corrales.
