Gran Hacienda Sauvignon Blanc (750ml)
Santa Rita was founded in 1880 and has been growing and evolving locally and now enjoys extreme success in global markets. It makes a range of styles; from simple everyday drinking varietal wines to complex premium styles. The Gran Hacienda line offers excellent varietal character at an amazing value.
This is a classic crisp and refreshing white Sauvignon Blanc. Its fruity aroma of citrus blossoms and peaches is well balanced by delicate herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics are enhanced by a pleasant acidity and a clean finish.
Grapes are harvested manually, de-stemmed and crushed; cold is applied to reduce temperature to 10°C. Under these conditions they are pressed and only the free run juice is used and not the press fractions. Musts are decanted by statics for 36 to 48 hours and later fermented at temperatures of 16°C. After fermentation, the wine is blended and stabilized.
