Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage

  • 2015
    • Winemaker's comments:

      A complex Sauvignon Blanc that shows fruity and minerality characters. Rich and savoury with very nice texture and a long finish.

    • Vinification:

      Grapes picked up the first week of March by hand, in small boxes of 10 kg each and transported to the winery by cooling truck. 40% of the grapes is whole bunches pressed immediately and 60% undergo an 2-hour pre-fermentation meceration. The free run and press juices are separated by tasting to select only the fraction that best represents the fresh and fruity characteristics. The must is fermented with high turbidity at 15°C temperatures to retain all of its fruitiness. 40% of the wine makes the alcoholic fermentation in French barrels, 10% new and 60% of the wine in stainless steel tanks. 40 % of the wine makes wild fermentation. 40 % of the wine is conserved in barrels for five months. SO2 is not used during the oak ageing.
