[TH] Sauvignon Blanc, Leyda Valley, Viña Undurraga
Influenced by the proximity of the Pacific Ocean, this is a fruity wine with intriguing minerality. The nose reveals notes of limes and spices, such as blackcurrant leaves, as well as nuances of green chilli peppers, fennel and gunpowder. The smooth-textured mouth is fresh and well-balanced with a delicate minerality and salinity. Long and vibrant in the finish.

Producer: T.H (Terroir Hunter)

Grape Varieties : Sauvignon Blanc

Vinification: The grapes were carefully transported and rigorously sorted at the winery to ensure that only ripe clusters free from rot underwent the cold maceration process, followed by gentle crushing. Free run and lightly pressed juice was chilled down to 8°C and cold stabilized for 48 hours. The juice was then racked to stainless steel tanks, where it was fermented at low temperatures (13°C-15°C) for 25 days. A small portion of the wine was fermented in second and third use French oak barrels. This 12% of the blend adds complexity and greater structure to the palate. The wine was left over its lees for six months in order to contribute greater texture in the mouth and more aromatic complexity. The final blend consists of 90% Clone Davis 1 and 5% of French clone 242.
