Description

 Famed for being the most highly awarded cool climate coastal winery in Chile, and with Viviana Navarette at the helm (voted Chile's top winemaker), these are wines that are completely distinct from what we have come to expect from the country. The unique microclimate comes from both the proximity to the coast but also, the cooling nature of the Humboldt current. Where the central valley is hot and dry, Leyda is cool and wet and it is this specific climate that brings the wines the unique freshness and balance of acidity that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Becuase of the unique expression and incredible quality, the winery soon had its own DO founded as D.O. Leyda Valley in 2001. The wines are born from two unique sites, El Granito, just 4Km from the sea and El Maiten at 12Km from the sea, bith with ancient granitic soild which lend a certain minerality to all the wines in the range

Wine tasting notes

Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the estate's coolest vineyard, just 12km from the Pacific Ocean, which brings a gentle breeze of lime and grapefruit, tempered by green chilli peppers, more grapefruit and a little gooseberry in the mouth.

Food matching

Superb on its own but will also compliment lamb or chicken.

Vinification notes

This wine is made with grapes taken from the coolest area in our vineyards, with south exposure, so it is the last Sauvignon Blanc to be harvested. These grapes were hand picked early in the morning in three different pickings moments: March 14th, 30th, and April 9 th, at 21,8 – 22,8 °Brix. In this way we ensure having different fruit flavours and aromas to build up the blend’s complexity. In the winery, the clusters were selected in a sorting stainless steel vibrant table in order to ensure the fruit quality, cold macerated in the pneumatic press at low temparature (8°C) for 12 hours and then, pressed at low bars separating the free run juice for making this Garuma SB. The juice was then chilled down to 8 º C, clarified to 70-120 NTU, and fermented 100% in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures (12,5-13°C, finishing at 16°C) for 22 days until dryness. The wine was left on its lees for 6 months to get roundness and improve the texture in the palate.
