Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale green yellow colour, this wine has elegance and freshness. The nose is austere but complex, silex stones, gooseberry, passionfruit and lime notes open to layers of riper character. Our Gran Reserva Sauvingon Blanc has great vibrancy and a complex mouthfeel with finesse and long persistency.
Vineyard Notes
The soil of our Pacífico vineyard, located in the coolest part of Leyda, has a unique texture and structure. The texture is determined by fine gravel (decomposed granite) and some clay material, while the porous soil structure allows good drainage and aeration but has the advantage of maintaining temperatures suitable for root formation.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were handpicked from selected cooler vineyards in the Leyda Valley. The combination of soil, sun exposure, climate, and ripeness of the grapes adds a variety of components to the final blend, producing the distinctive characteristics of this Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva. The must was cold macerated on its lees for 10 days at 3º–4ºC. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 12ºC, producing a slow, gentle fermentation process. After fermentation the wine remained on its lees for up to 3 months and then was racked, blended, gently fined before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve this wine as an aperitif and with any seafood dish, particularly oysters, shrimp, and fish, as well as white meats and salads.
Other Notes
The most elegant Sauvignon Blancs come from cool wine growing regions, and our vineyard is located just 14km from the Pacific Ocean, right next to the Maipo River estuary, allowing the cold winds blowing down from the Andes Mountains to reach our vineyard at night.
