  • A characterful Sauvignon Blanc showcasing a strong wet stone and gunflint intensity, combined with grassy and herbaceous notes.Balanced Sauvignon Blanc strong wet stone and gunflint intensity, combined with grassy and herbaceous notes. The palate is balanced by refreshing acidity through to a long, persistent finish. Mineral intensity combined with enticing white peach notes bottled directly from the cement egg significantly impacts the structuring and stabilization of the wine through the natural movements created by this shape.

The grapes were gently pressed and transferred to the cement eggs; 50% of the fruit was vinified with skin contact. Fermentation started naturally with native yeasts at temperatures of between 18 to 21°C. When fermentation was complete, a partial malolactic conversion took place. The wine was then left in the same cement eggs for nine months without separating it from the lees, which generated volume on the palate. It was bottled directly from the cement egg. The cement egg significantly impacts the structuring and stabilization of the wine through the natural movements created by this shape. 

This characterful and bright Sauvignon Blanc showcases mineral intensity combined with enticing white peach notes. The wonderful volume and texture on the palate are balanced by a refreshing acidity, which leads to a persistent finish.

Winery

The grapes are grown in a high-altitude, drip-irrigated single vineyard in Tupungato, Gualtallary, in the outstanding vine-growing area of the Uco Valley. Located at 1,350 meters above sea level, Gualtallary is the highest vine-growing zone in the Province of Mendoza, situated at the foot of the Tupungato volcano. This zone is characterized by its combination of altitude, alluvial soils, sunny days, low rainfall, and wide temperature ranges. The diurnal temperatures here oscillate between 35°C and 17°C, creating long, slow ripening periods, concentrating the flavours in the fruit while retaining a refreshing balance. The cool climate and white, chalky soil impart great structure and a delicious acidity to the wine
