“Back in 1962, having just minished my winemaking studies, I was keen to offer the family some new knowledge. So, in a small inland winery, we fermented parellada grapes at low tenperature for the first time to obtain a fresher, more aromatic wine: This was how the first Viña Sol came into being. Fruity aroma with hints of apple and pineapple. Smooth, balanced palate witha fine edge. Best served chilled 10ºC.Best served chilled 10ºC.”
“It has a very nice colour. Just approaching the glass close to the nose you can notice pear and banana scents. Light on the palate.
Good wine, but I would not have taken it with fish.
It's a white I like to drink when I'm alone.
It is sold in many wine shops.
Gran Viña Sol Blanc Sec 2010, more than decent wine.
“Intense colour at sight. As soon as I smelled it, I noticed the white flowers scent. Berry flavour.
To combine with seafood from the north of Spain.
My friends loved this Viña Sol.
It is an excellent wine.
