San Marzano Edda Lei Bianco Salento 2019

A very distinctive and complex wine with intriguing
aromas of orange blossom and rosemary
complemented by rich guava and peach with
overlaying freshness. Packs a punch of flavour.

Producer Note
In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for
generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. Through the
decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 vine growers.
Using modern and technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce
elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of
time honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques, enables this winery
to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while reflecting
the local terroir. In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded
European Producer of the Year 2017.

The 2019 vintage experienced a rainy winter which helped to restore soil water
reserves. A mild spring followed with little rain through to a very hot, dry and windy
summer, which reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. Good diurnal temperature
differences encouraged regular ripening of the grapes, with good total acidity and
healthy, ripe fruit.

The vineyard is located at approximately 100 metres above sea level and benefits
from great diurnal temperature variations. The warmer temperatures during the day
and cooler nights encourage the grapes to have a long maturation period, with the
heat of the day promoting sugar accumulation, while the cooler nights preserve the
acidity levels. The vines are planted to a density of 4,500 vines per hectare and are
trained according to the Guyot method. The soils are quite thin, soft and shallow, but
have a good texture.

The grapes were gently destemmed and then cool macerated for several hours to
allow the flavour to develop. This was followed by a gentle pressing and a cold
settling to encourage a natural sedimentation. Fermentation took place in French
oak barrels. The wine was matured on its fine lees in barriques for a period of four
months, with weekly lees stirring which imparted texture and complexity to the wine.

Tasting Note
A distinctive blend delivering aromas of sun-ripened peach and mellow floral
aromatics, which are interwoven with delicate hints of vanilla. Fresh and beautifully
balanced, the rounded palate is elegantly styled and has a touch of minerality on
the finish.
