Vinos Sanz takes its first wine passed by casks of all its collection, whether in its white wines of Rueda or Madrid reds. It is a 100% Tempranillo wine, from the O.D. Wines of Madrid and with 14% alcohol. Its presentation is very attractive, showing another distinctive and recognizable landscape of the capital of Spain, the bank of the Manzanares (Madrid River), as it has been done the young wine Sanz La Capital where another emblem of Madrid is represented as Paseo de la Castellana.
Sanz The Capital Roble was born as a perfect complement to its namesake young wine (Sanz La Capital). Its passage through wood for 4 months contributes a great balance maintaining the expressiveness of the red fruit typical of this intense varietal.
This wine shows an attractive cherry color, clean and bright. In the nose we can feel red fruits accompanied by light tones of cocoa, vanilla and roasted. Franco and Inteso. In the mouth we see that it is a balanced, elegant and long wine. A pleasant tannin that gives it a pleasant velvety feel without forgetting its power and great structure. Broad and fleshy.
This is the second product of D.O. Wines of Madrid from our collection and both were born during this 2015. A project that is slowly being consolidated thanks to the first great response received by the public with Sanz La Capital.
We are sure you will like it very much!
If in 2013 our Finca La Colina Sauvignon Blanc was awarded a Grand Zarcillo de Oro, this time it has been our Finca La Colina Verdejo who has achieved a Gold Zarcillo in the presumed Zarcillo 2015 Awards.
The competition was held in Valladolid on 29 and 30 April and 1 and 2 May, organized once again by the Junta de Castilla y León. This year 2015 has been the XVI national edition and its VIII international, and throughout these years this contest has been consolidated as the most important of the Spanish wines and, little by little, is also getting to be one of the most prestigious at the international level.
Wines from all the world’s producing countries can be included, and although we do not have the official participation data for this year, the total number of wines presented in the last edition of 2013 was 1819, of which 36% were wines of Castilla y León.
Finally, remember that this is the third international recognition of great prestige for Finca La Colina Verdejo during this 2015, after the Silver Medal received by the Concours Mondial du Bruxelles and the Bronze Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards. We have completed the medal podium!
Last October 29 was held the annual presentation of the prestigious Peñín Guide 2016. This time the venue chosen for the Hall of the Best Wines of Spain was the Municipal Palace of Congresses of Madrid and it was attended by about 4000 people , Mainly professionals. The event had more than 440 wines belonging to about 200 wineries in 15 autonomous communities, with more than 50 production areas represented.
With regard to our wines, one more year we can say that they are placed in the head train of the wines of Rueda in terms of quality is concerned. Our young wines achieve the best grades within their respective families if we look at wines of similar characteristics, so we can proudly say that we continue to produce one of the best collections of white wine from Rueda and Spain, according to the Peñín Guide.
The main novelty in our wines is that we have presented for the first time to the contest our semi sweet ¨Fri Sanz Te¨. This is the second vintage of this wine. It is a personal bet of the winery that saw the light back there by May 2014 and that, despite being the wine “different” from our whites, we wanted to continue in the same line of quality as the rest of dry wines from our assortment .
Our ratings are as follows:
- Sanz Clásico: 89 points
- Sanz Verdejo: 90 points
- Sanz Sauvignon: 89 points
- Fri Sanz Te: 88 points
- Finca La Colina Verdejo CIENXCIEN: 91 points
- Finca La Colina Sauvignon Blanc: 93 points
Obviously, the tastings have been made to the 2014 vintage of our wines, which we consider one of the best in recent years within the enormous regularity that our products have added after vintage year after year.
We hope to continue with this regularity in our scores in the following competitions of the Peñín Guide. A constancy over the years and vintages that we believe identifies and differentiates us.
