Description

Expert sourcing means that this crisp Sauvignon Blanc really overdelivers. Produced from old vine Sauvignon Blanc grown on the cool, hilly farm of the Martin family, this has fresh, crisp, ripe citrus fruit and is packed with lime zest and kiwi fruit flavours. Think of cool glacial streams and enjoy the refreshing, racy acidity on the finish. The Martin family who own the vineyard at the cool, hilly farm still only grows Sauvignon, Merlot, peaches and apples. They are of French extraction (of course) now forth generation Chilean and today work with winemaker Eric Monnin to create the style of the wine from the 40-60 year old vineyards. Elsewhere Eric Monnin has grown a close relationship with the aptly-named Hacienda Valle Frio, a beautiful 200 year old estate in the rocky,Riverine Maule Valley. Over the last 5 years Eric has worked closely with winemaker Rodrigo on extracting the very best expression of their mountainous site apparent in the Sierra Grande Chardonnay and Cabernet. Long standing working relationships with growers in the region enable us to source premium fruit, with the ultimate aim of making excellent quality Chilean house wines with true style and character. The altitude of the vineyards ensures that there is minimal intervention so no chemical sprays or irrigation – only glacial streams. Steep slopes and old vines mean that the grapes have to be hand-harvested. Cool fermentation to preserve freshness and fruit aroma, followed by a short period settling in tank then early bottling to preserve the wines youthful vibrancy. Food Recommendations:- Quaff with fish and chips, grilled fish and seafood.
