Hacienda Grimon is based at the foot of the Monte Grimón mountain range in the village of Ventas Blancas, 15 minutes from the Rioja provincial capital of Logroño. The current bodega was constructed in 1999 over the grandparent's old family house and their first vintage of the Grimón wines was in 2002. Owned and run by the Olivan family, this 25-hectare bodega lies in the secluded Valle de Jubera. Viticulture is organic with no use of herbicides and pesticides and hand harvesting is employed in all the vineyards. Great care is taken to provide the healthiest grapes of the highest quality, as nearly all the wines will experience extended ageing. In addition, all Grimon`s wines are made from their own grapes, a rarity in La Rioja. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc is aged in old 225-litre barrels following fermentation for a short period before bottling, giving up a floral and aromatic white which pairs particularly well with shellfish dishes.
A light straw yellow in colour with pale green flecks. Scents of citrus fruits, melon and pineapple. On the palate the acidity is balanced with a pronounced minerality leading to a clean and lingering finish. Great with gazpacho, grilled tuna or an artichoke, blood orange and feta cheese salad.
