Grape Variety100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting notes: A bright, glittering yellow. The powerful and expressive nose opens on grapefruit aromas, going on to develop white peach and toasted almond notes. From a fresh and complex attack, the crisp and rich mid-palate reveals tropical fruit and mango flavours followed by toasted notes. The flavours linger on the long and well-balanced finish.

Region: Central Valley, Chile

Vineyard: 

Altitud:

Time of harvest:

Harvest Method: The grapes are hand-picked then brought to the bodega. They are hand-sorted several times then destemmed and lightly crushed before vinification.

Winemaking: The weather in 2015 was exceptionally hot and dry, enabling the grapes to reach optimum maturity. Lower than average rainfall, mostly occurring during the winter, together with the highest recorded average temperature in the last 50 years or more, were the decisive influences behind the very Mediterranean style of the 2015 vintage. As a result, the wines are generous and powerful while keeping a velvet, silky texture. They display a very distinct Chilean identity, particularly in the expression of the fruit, which, combined with a concentrated mid-palate, brings complexity and richness while revealing the uniqueness of each terroir. 2015 is a vintage with excellent ageing potential.

Maturing: The wine is matured in vats for a relatively short period of around six months in order to preserve all its freshness and fruit.
