Varieties
100% Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaking
The yield was 9 tons per hectare from a parcel of specifically selected micro-terroir in our vineyards. The grapes were carefully handpicked between March 6 and April 1, depending on the different clones and soil types found in our vineyards. The grapes were destemmed and selected one by one upon arrival at the winery andplaced whole into the press. After a light pressing (<0.5 bar), alcoholic fermentationwas initiated in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures (14º–16°C / 57ºF–61ºF), forapproximately 20 days with yeasts that were specially selected for this variety. 6% ofthe wine was aged in second-use Bordeaux barrels and left on its lees for threemonths. 94% of the wine fermented in stainless steel tanks and remained on its leesfor three months.

Tasting Note
This wine is a challenge every year, both due to the wait as well as for the motivation to being faithful to the style while advancing in quality. Therefore for this vintage we maintain our ripe character but add more complexity to the blend with mineral and citrusy notes from clone 1 blended with the more tropical notes of clone 242 and a fresh touch from clone 107.

Serving Suggestions
Fantastic to serve well chilled as a refreshing aperitif. Great with thin fish, dishes of marinated raw fish, oysters and mussels.
