This Sauvignon Blanc displays a citric profile of mango, mandarin and grapefruit skin, all framed by the herbal profile that characterises the variety.

Vinification Notes

The unforgettable 2018 season in Aconcagua Costa will be remembered as one of the coldest we have ever recorded in this vineyard, with a heat summation 15% lower than historic averages, mainly concentrated during the months that preceded the harvest. At the beginning of spring, temperatures fluctuated around the average, but from mid-October onwards the heat summation began to decrease and position below the historic temperatures. January, February and March were even colder, especially the two first months of the year, which were accompanied by abundant cloudiness. On the other hand, the absence of rains from November to April provided the ideal conditions for a slow and steady ripening process, resulting in exceptionally clean healthy fruit.
