A bright Sauvignon Blanc from Chile with lively aromas of fresh citrus fruit, green apple and orange blossom notes. The concentrated fruit flavours are vibrant and lively and the finish is crisp and fruity.
Meet the maker: Château Los Boldos
Region: Cachapoal, Maipo – Chile
Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc (100%)
13% ABV / 750ml
Los Boldos has 170 hectares of vineyards which benefit from a Mediterranean climate. The clear, bright skies during the summer and the diurnal temperature range are ideal for growing fruit that maintains fresh acidity while ripening to perfection.
The nearby Cachapoal river also moderates temperatures, while stony alluvial soils in the vineyard ensure low yields.
Los Boldos makes wine exclusively from their own vineyards, therefore controlling everything from grape to bottle.
The must was fermented at a cool 15°C for a two week period in stainless steel tanks to retain crisp, clean varietal flavours.
The wine rested for another six months in tank, with no malolactic fermentation.
The resulting wine is zesty and fresh with a bright fruit profile.
