LA PUNTILLA SAUVIGNON BLANC
Appellation: Central Valley
Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol: 13% vol.
Harvest: handmade picking during March
Flat and eroded soils, high minerality and good permeability.
Chilean Mediterranean climate mix dry summers and cold and rainy winters, which makes it ideal for vine. The cooling influences of the Andes and Pacific Ocean at night with warm and sunny days, result in a growing season with slow ripening and high-quality grapes.
During the season, no rain was reported during blossom neither spring frosts. High thermal oscillation, with moderate to low maximum temperatures at the final ripening stage benefited acidity and aromatic expression in wines. Wines depicted more acidity and less alcohol.
Pale and bright golden yellow color. At the beginning, medium intensity notes of herbs and minerality, then continues with reminders of pear, pineapple, green apple and lemon. In mouth it feels bubbly, alive and dry. The apple and grapefruit notes are confirmed. It is crisp, fresh with high acidity and well balanced.
Ceviche, salads, pastas with seafood, goat cheese and smoked salmon.
Best served between 54°F to 56°F
