Sauvignon Blanc Silvestre
Crisp, Light, Refreshing
Chile, Rapel Valley
D.O. Valle del Rapel
Bright yellow/green colour. Intense aromas of citrus and tropical notes of soft pineapple and mango. On the palate it is extremely fresh, elegant, with a lively acidity and a long finish. The perfect weekday Sauvignon!
Alcoholic fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks at 10-12° C for 20 days. Pre-fermentation maceration takes place at a temperature of 8° C for 6 hours. The wine is bottled while still young and without barrel aging as a way to preserve its aromatic intensity.
It all began in 1851 when a young Silvestre Ochagavia started a revolution in national winemaking by planting the first French varieties in Santiago. With more than 165 years of existence and pioneers of chilean viticulture, Viña Ochagavia creates disctintive and passionate wines for the world to enjoy.
Viña Ochagavia offers Bordeaux legacy wines with grapes harvested from the best valleys of Chile. Their wines stand out for their character, elegance and passion, attributes that give tribute to our founder and father of Chilean viticulture: Mr. Silvestre Ochagavia.http://ochagaviawines.com/
