The varieties of grapes to produce Sauvignon Blanc Verdejo Dominio de Fontana were picked and fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 16°C. The proportions are carefully blended each vintage to achieve an intriguing combination of the more full-bodied, intense Sauvignon Blanc with a fresher, more austere Verdejo. After blending, Sauvignon Blanc Verdejo Dominio de Fontana remained on its fine lees for a minimum of three months for a rounder, fuller texture.
