Made with Sauvignon Blanc grown in the Curico Valley. The grapes are picked by hand and transported to the winery where they are sorted and destemmed. The grapes drop by gravity directly into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, where they undergo a 5- to 10-day cold soak followed by fermentation.
On the nose, this Sauvignon Blanc expresses citrus notes as well as pineapple and some green notes- fresh cut grass and fresh Jalapenõ. The palate is fresh and crisp with lively acidity and lots of fruit; the wine is slightly tart on the finish. Pairing this with some food would be really make it shine. This is really a great value wine at $14!
