Producer Note
Via's definition of Black Sheep is someone special and out of the ordinary who attracts attention and stands out from the crowd. Winemaker Carlos Gatica seeks to combine sustainable viticultural practices with innovative winemaking, to produce fruit-driven wines of real character. "Sustainability, expression of terroir, and quality are key. The aim is to deliver wines with superior quality, at fair prices, made in harmony with nature". These are individual wines for individual people. Vineyard
The Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Campo Lindo and la Esperanza vineyard blocks, which were planted in 2004. The majority of the vines are trained with a vertical Trellis system and a small sector with Lyre Trellis which provides more shade thus contributing an additional sun protection for the bunches. Foliage management takes place for both varieties, aimed at creating a shady canopy to protect the grapes from direct sunlight. This produces a cooler microclimate for the fruit creating greater aromatic intensity and a good natural acidity in the final wines. The soils are of alluvial origin, with a clay-loam texture and moderate fertility. Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked in the morning to maintain their freshness and protect them from oxidation. The Carménère was whole-cluster pressed without prior crushing, a crucial process in preventing colour extraction and producing a cleaner must. The Sauvignon Blanc was crushed before being pressed in a strictly reductive environment to prevent any oxidation. 30% of the Sauvignon Blanc was cold macerated at 10°C, before being pressed. Each variety was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks, for approximately 25 days. The fermenation took place at cool temperatures of 10 to 12°C, in order to gain a greater aromatic expression and finesse in the ?nal wine. Tasting Note
