The vineyards where this Sauvignon Blanc comes from is situated on the very top of the hills at 400 m above sea level on a north facing vineyard. Here it is slightly cooler than any other part of our vineyards and with soils of sand and limestone which gives this wine some mineralogy.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are handled very carefully during picking and sorting. Every care is taken to limit the exposure to oxygen during the pressing of the grapes. Only the free run is used to make this wine. Grape must is cooled and allowed to settle for 24 to 48 hours before racking off the sediments. After racking off the sediments, we inoculate with a yeast that will ferment at cold temperatures and will give us good herbaceous characteristics.
The wine is fermented at 10 to 14°C, the fermentation takes up to 4 weeks to complete. After fermentation the wine is left on the yeast lees for one month before we start to do the batonnage (mixing the yeast lees) which gives the wine more structure.
Yellow-green color with tropical fruit flavor, guava and passion fruit. It is a well balanced wine with fine acidity, felt pleasant in the mouth palace. Fresh and balanced,
with a fruity character standing out on the aftertaste, which makes this wine an ideal company for dishes or a good appetizer.
Chicken, seafood, cheese and pasta dishes. Serving temperature 10 -12ºC.
