Ramón Bilbao Sauvignon Blanc Rueda DO 2018

Citrus-forward and Clean

A white wine proud¬≠ly pro¬≠duced and hold¬≠ing a Denom¬≠i¬≠na¬≠cion de Ori¬≠gen from Rue¬≠da. A sen¬≠si¬≠tive and fresh grape bring¬≠ing you world sensations.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Lemon-yel¬≠low in colour and pale in inten¬≠si¬≠ty, this wine is clean and bril¬≠liant, and pro¬≠duces tears on the glass. In nose, it is frank, clean and of high inten¬≠si¬≠ty. Char¬≠ac¬≠terised by aro¬≠mas of trop¬≠i¬≠cal and cit¬≠rus fruit with notes of herbs and fresh¬≠ly cut grass, there is an under¬≠ly¬≠ing bou¬≠quet of white pep¬≠per and nuts, drawn out from the wood.

In mouth it is intense, of medi¬≠um acid¬≠i¬≠ty, and medi¬≠um-bod¬≠ied with well-inte¬≠grat¬≠ed alco¬≠hol and a pleas¬≠ant tex¬≠ture. The retronasal aro¬≠ma us again intense, with the pres¬≠ence of trop¬≠i¬≠cal and critric fruit in nose.

To sum up, it is a bal¬≠anced wine which is ready to drink right away, but also has poten¬≠tial for lay¬≠ing down.

Best served between 7¬ļC and 9¬ļC.


This Span¬≠ish Sauvi¬≠gnon Blanc is an ide¬≠al accom¬≠pa¬≠ni¬≠ment to fish, seafood, sushi and steamed veg¬≠eta¬≠bles. Also works great with goat cheese. 

World‚Äôs Most Admired Wine Brand

Hailed as one of Spain‚Äôs most inno¬≠v¬≠a¬≠tive pro¬≠duc¬≠ers and the title¬≠hold¬≠er of 2019‚Äôs World‚Äôs Most Admired Wine Brand, Ram√≥n Bil¬≠bao was estab¬≠lished way back in 1924, when Don Ram√≥n Bil¬≠bao Mur¬≠ga set up his home in the heart of Rioja‚Äôs wine region, Haro. 

Ram√≥n Bil¬≠bao was a man ahead of his time who had an ambi¬≠tious dream to trav¬≠el the world whilst using wine as his tick¬≠et to this adven¬≠ture. For months he bus¬≠ied him¬≠self with cal¬≠cu¬≠lat¬≠ing routes, winds and tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠tures and with choos¬≠ing the best wines to take on the expe¬≠di¬≠tion, before depart¬≠ing for for¬≠eign lands in the spring of 1924. This notion of the brave adven¬≠ture is still strong¬≠ly ingrained into the essence of the estate, and is reflect¬≠ed in every¬≠thing they do. 

Cur¬≠rent¬≠ly the win¬≠ery boasts of 180 hectares of vine¬≠yards and is spear¬≠head¬≠ed by the vision of chief wine¬≠mak¬≠er, Rodol¬≠fo Basti¬≠da. While he‚Äôs a man who likes to push the bound¬≠aries, Basti¬≠da main¬≠tains the utmost respect for the knowl¬≠edge and expe¬≠ri¬≠ence that comes from tra¬≠di¬≠tion, and believes the future lies in tri¬≠al and exploration.

The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 7 to 15¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 3 to 5 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
