Sauvignon Blanc

Secret Reserve

Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage

  • 2017
    • Winemaker's comments:

      This wine has a brilliant yellow color with green hues. Its intense aroma is a fragrant blend of citrus fruit and passion fruit with a slightly herbal backdrop typical of this variety. On the palate, it is concentrated, with a pleasant acidity that highlights its freshness, firm structure and excellent persistence.

    • Vinification:

      20% of the grapes were cold macerated for 18 hours at temperatures under 5ºC. The rest were crushed and immediately pressed. Free-run and low pressures were used to produce the Reserve level, in order to ensure high fruit concentration and a good acidity balance. Fined musts fermented at low temperatures (13-14 °C) allow good fruit development and retention. Work on its lees is done before its fining.

    • Potential aging:

      2-3 years

    • Technicals details:

      • Alcohol: 13.8 % v/v
      • Total Acidity: 5.14  g/L (expressed in Tartaric Acid)
      • pH: 3.25 g/L
      • Residual Sugar:  1.44 g/L

    • Suggested food:

      Ideal as an aperitif or with marinated raw fish, shrimp cocktail, chicken and caviar.
