A pale yellow straw introduces a refreshing nose of prickly pear, green grapefruit, green melon and gooseberries. Broom flowers and some aniseed touches are enhanced mineral notes.

Sauvignon Blanc

Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc 100%

Style: Fresh and elegant

Production: 21,000 bottles

Yield: 9 Tons

Age of the Vines: 16 years

Soil Type: Coluvial, sandy and granitic, with limestone influences

Harvest: Manual. Grapes are carefully transported to the winery in small containers.

Analysis: Alcohol 13.0 % vol.

Vinification: The grapes have been handpicked on 16 of February, in small 12 kg containers. In the vineyard thereʼs a first selection where only healthy and perfectly ripe bunches are harvested. A second selection is made just before entering the press, destemmed and under gas protection. In the press the fruit have around 6 hours of maceration, and then start the press time with low pressure and few rotations to obtain the cleanest and clearer juice as possible. The rape is decanted, and once clean, fermented with selected yeasts. Temperatures are totally controlled, between12 and14C, to keep all the potential. From fermentation until the end of the process, wine is in contact with its fine lees, removing them twice a week to get better volume and character. 10% of the blend has been fermented in old french barrels in order to give more structure and complexity.

Tasting Note: A pale yellow straw introduces a refreshing nose of prickly pear, green grapefruit, green melon and gooseberries. Broom flowers and some aniseed touches are enhanced mineral notes. The mouth is well balanced between freshness and texture. The good volume is backed by a precise acidity and layered by the mineral touch. This same touch allows a vibrant finish, where the fresh fruits express the Limari side of the variety.

Best Enjoyed: Ready to enjoy

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
