Jane Ventura is a family-run winery situated in the Catalonian region of Penedès near to the coast and just south of Barcelona. The estate was founded by Joseph Jane in 1914 and today the winery is run by 4th generation wine maker, Gerard Jane Ubeda who continues the family philosophy of treating the vines and the resulting wines as a way of life while utilising the unique natural environment of Lower Penedes where his two wineries - Mas Vilella and Finca Els Camps - are located. The vines are planted at altitude (700 metres above sea level) and this, combined with the influence of the Mediterranean Sea enables the grapes to preserve their acidity and freshness. The Bianco Seleccio is a blend of four indigenous grape varieties from very old vines - Xarello (70%), Macabeo (15%), Garnatxa Blanca (5%) and Malvasía de Sitges (10%) all of which come from 15 different vineyards. Light and fresh, this pairs perfectly with grilled seafood.
A straw yellow colour. Aromas lychee, pineapple, grapefruit and fennel. In the mouth, crisp and light with mineral notes leading to a surprisingly long finish. Great with braised rabbit in a mustard sauce, tuna steak with onions and tomatoes or a warm scallop and mange tout salad.
