Sauvignon Blanc Don Silvestre
Crisp, Light, Refreshing
Chile, Central Valley
D.O. Valle Central
Clean and vibrant pale greenish yellow. Citrus fruit such as lime and orange blend with sweet fruit like peach and pineapple, all entwined with floral notes. On the palate a medium bodied wine where fresh acidity balances well with a riper fruit profile of white peach. Mineral and refreshing lime-accented finish.
The grapes used in this Sauvignon Blanc are harvested primarily mechanically and at night, when cooler temperatures help preserve fresh aromas and prevent oxidation. Subsequently, the grapes are processed and pressed at a low temperature to obtain their juice which is clarified and fermented with selected yeasts under controlled temperatures. Once fermentation is completed, sediment is removed through a gentle filtering process carried out before bottling.
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/
