Sourced exclusively from a small selection of vineyards within the famed, cool climate, Central Valley region of Chile – these are some of Chile’s finest cool climate vineyards.
SOILS AND PROFILE
Vineyards are situated mostly on moderately fertile alluvial soils as well as sandy loams over decomposed granite. Some of our coastal vineyards are heavily influenced by cold Pacific currents and enjoy cool nights and afternoon breezes.
Grapes are harvested at night or in the cool early morning to ensure they arrive at the winery in peak condition. Grapes are crushed and pressed promptly, and at all times are kept under a blanket of CO2 to avoid oxidation and retain all of the delicate and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc character. Batches are vinified separately, fermented slowly at 12-14°C with selected yeasts. Post fermentation, batches are blended, lightly fined and stabilised before being filtered prior to bottling.
COLOUR Bright pale green colour.
NOSE Notes of light rose petal, floral aromas and lemon peel notes.
PALATE Fresh and vibrant with a hint of sweet fruit and delicate floral notes, nettle flavours, quite viscous mid palate that lead into a soft, cleansing finish.
FOOD MATCH Pan seared fish with a crisp green salad and light vinaigrette.
