Experts preserve traditions and multiply the qualities of this exquisite drink
At Bodegas Paniza we had been accompanying the production of this must in Europe since 1953, which allowed us to grow and innovate permanently, improving day after day the quality of each of the varieties we offer to our clients.
Our company not only has been part of the history of wine making, it has helped preserve the fertile lands to harvest vines in Campo de Cariñena, with more than 11 square miles of vineyards in the south of Zaragoza province, just on the lower hills of the range. Nature provides perfect weather and soil conditions to get high quality feedstock that allow us to be one of the best white wine producers in the whole European continent.
Even though the red wine has been the favorite for most people since ancient times, its white companion has become the first choice in celebrations thanks to its unique flavor and special characteristics. Those are the result of the winemaking process, which does not include solid parts of the grapes, like the stem and skin. Essentially, grapes elaborated this way always yield clear wines.
Nevertheless at Paniza we do not settle in just preserving traditional techniques in our winemaking process, but we added other innovative methods like “cold-soak”, or prefermentation maceration to augment its aromatic characteristics, which is feasible by picking the basic aromas coming from the skin.
This way we bring the best out of the grapes, which gives the wine a perfect transparent look worth tasting and admiring.
We guarantee a gift to the palate with our young white wine varietals
To date we are proud to offer an extraordinary class of young white wine, as a result of the fermentation of different white grapes. Truth be told, other winemakers use red grapes to produce this wine, since grape color has no influence on wine color, provided the fruit pulp has no pigments and gives a greenish or pale yellow liquid as a final product.
We, at Bodegas Paniza, harvest a vast variety of white grapes to elaborate our three main young white varietals: Paniza Viura, Jabalí Viura & Chardonnay and Fábula de Paniza Chardonnay. Vines that give this type of fruit are better adapted to different weather conditions than red grapes. However, the winemaking process they undergo has to be more delicate, since skinless grapes lack that natural protection and musts tend to oxidize faster than their red or rosé counterparts.
Our young white wine varietals have unique aromatic properties, and pretty intense in fact, which resembles that of some tropical fruits like pineapple and banana. This characteristic adds a fresh flavor that becomes ideal for marrying different dishes and enjoy at any occasion. Moreover, we harvest grape varieties that give drier and herbal odor hints, available in our selected line of white wines.
