Fuenteseca Macabeo Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh and fruity organic wine from Spain's Utiel Requena. Lightly aromatic, with peach and passion fruit characters on the nose; the palate is textured with fresh and zesty citrus fruit acidity. The finish has subtle mineral notes and a clean, crisp finish. The Finca Fuenteseca estate is in the high rugged plateau region of Utiel Requena, nearly 1000 metres above sea level. It covers an area of 67 hectares just inland from Valencia. The climate is a combination of hot, dry summers and cold nights - combine this with poor limestone soils and you have an area relatively free from vine diseases and so ideal for organic farming. The wines are made from organically grown grapes in vineyards cultivated using natural fertilisers, cover crops, biological control of pests and not using any chemical products that may damage the health of the environment.
