The grapes for this wine come from two vineyards in the Colchagua Valley.
The first is on the Fundo San Carlos property near Cunaco, where the blocks average 22 years in age.
The second is in the Litueche zone just over 12 miles from the Colchagua coast, which lends freshness, natural acidity, and aromatic intensity to the wine.
Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Elaboration: The grapes were destemmed into a press without crushing and macerated for 4–6 hours at 10ºC to extract aromatic precursors and flavors contained in the skins and to increase the sensation of oiliness perceived in the final wine. The juice is later drained and decanted for 36–48 hours at 8ºC before the clean must is transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation at a range of temperatures (14º–18ºC) to obtain different aromatic profiles and different characteristics on the palate.
Tasting Notes: Greenish-yellow in color with outstanding fruity aromas of white peach, pineapple, and grapefruit intermingled with floral and subtle citrus and saline notes. The palate is complete, fruity, fresh, and persistent with good volume and a pleasing finish.
