Matias Riccitelli Blanco de la Casa Valle de Uco 2021

A textured and full-flavoured blend, with complex aromas
of green apple, hay and citrus notes underpinned by
remarkable minerality.
ProducerNote
Matias Riccitelli is the son of renowned winemaker Jorge Riccitelli. Having worked at
some of the most prestigious wineries in Argentina and several vintages around the
world, Matias used his experience, knowledge and passion and set up his own winery
in 2009. His vineyards cover 50 hectares located in three selected sites within the
premium growing region of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. This is a young and dynamic
project in which Matias is seeking to express the full potential of Argentine terroir.
Vineyard
Each component of the blend comes from carefully selected, high-altitude coolclimate sites which produce grapes with aromatic complexity and beautiful freshness.
The Sauvignon Blanc vineyard is located in the premium viticultural region of
Gualtallary, where the vines are planted in calcareous soils at 1,400 metres above sea level. The Semillon grapes come from a low-yielding 550-year-old vineyard in La Consulta,
where the vines grow at 1,000 metres elevation in sandy soils and produce rich,
concentrated wines. The Chardonnay component comes from La Carrera which is
located at 1,700 metres above sea level with sandy soils which are supported by gravel
and boulder.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in
concrete eggs with wild yeasts at low temperatures, to retain the freshness and
aromatics of the cool-climate fruit. The wine was aged for eight months in concrete
eggs.
Tasting Note
Complex aromas of green apple, hay and herbaceous notes are underpinned by
remarkable minerality. Textured and full flavoured with wonderful fluency and a ch
energy on the finish.
