Winemaker's Notes:

Casa Grand Selection Sauvignon Blanc is hand-harvested at night in our Las Kuras Vineyard (in the Rapel Valley), which is unique for its stony soil. Hand-harvesting at night enhances the fruitiness and crispness of the grapes, and also helps reduce the use of energy at the winery, since there is no need for additional cooling in the cellar. Strict quality control continues at the winery through a state of the art optical berry selector, Vistalys, which chooses only the freshest and purest grapes for our wines. Before bottling, we added 11% of Semillon (from old vines in the Apalta Vineyard) in order to intensify the nose and round out the mid-palate. Casa Grand Selection Sauvignon Blanc is a very charming wine with crisp acidity and complex flavors, making it delicious on its own or paired with dishes such as fresh vegetable salads, appetizers and seafood.
