Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a clear, crispy and fruity wine with light yellow-green color, bright and transparent. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Leyda valley. After fermentation there we apply cold stabilization and then bottling. There is no oak ageing in this wine in order to maintain the freshness and crispiness of the Sauvignon Blanc from this area. Peaches, pineapples and other tropical fruits with citric hints together with a nice minerality, makes this wine a fresh and appealing wine. The aroma shows its power and super Sauvignon Blanc character, also showing the full potential of its cold zone origin, with morning fogs, low temperatures and long hanging period. At palate is persistent, very fresh, crispy with nice structure at mid palate.

Critical Acclaim

" "The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Vineyard, a more serious effort, is an unoaked cuvee with an expressive bouquet of spring flowers, citrus, and fresh herbs. Light- to medium-bodied, it exhibits lively white fruit flavors, vibrant acidity, and excellent balance. This exceptional value has a pure, fruit-filled finish." "
