Toro Bravo Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2018 DO Valencia

Toro Bravo Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2018 DO Valencia

The heat and humidity have got us hankering for some refreshment that doesn’t involve trespassing into the neighbour’s pool. Maybe a cool glass of vino, something with vibrant fruit, zesty acidity and a clean finish will do the trick. Oh, and something we can afford would be nice! Luckily the craze-causing team behind Toro Bravo has created a white wine that is just as delicious as the red! Toro Bravo Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc is the mirror image of Toro Bravo red: well-balanced, well-priced, and gulp-able! Meet your new favourite summer white!

Tasting Notes: This blend of Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc delivers ripe, juicy lemon and grapefruit notes along with white peach and hints of cut grass from that splash of Sauvignon Blanc. It’s ready to rock right out of the fridge, and we bet you can’t sip just once!

Enjoy With: Summer salads with a citrus vinaigrette, ceviche, shrimp, and grilled chicken or fish. It pairs nicely with hot days, humidity and thirst!

Style: A fruity, well-balanced and medium-bodied white wine.

Terroir/Region: Just 60km from Madrid, the La Mancha DO is the world’s largest certified winegrowing region (‘DO’ in Spain). The majority of wines made here are red, however, small pockets of the region are cooler and ideal for white grapes. The soils help maintain a natural acidity in the wines that allow whites to be intensely fruity, while still balanced and refreshing.

Producer: Toro Bravo is all about consistent great value. The winery team has been able to secure long-term partnerships with the families who own many of the La Mancha region’s best vineyards, allowing the final wine to be a consistent blend from year to year thereby ensuring great quality vintage after vintage.

Availability: The 2018 Toro Bravo Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc is available in your local LCBO and is also available for online ordering. Enjoy some summer refreshment!
