Left Wave Sauvignon Blanc

The Left Wave, the most common breaking wave in Chile, symbolizes the Sauvignon Blanc, arguably the best white varietal of Chile.

Tasting Notes:

Our Wave Series Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant and fresh with hints of lime, grapefruit and Gooseberry on the nose. This light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc is full of fresh fruit and lively acidity that pairs perfectly with a variety of seafood dishes, salads or creamy cheeses. Our enticing wines highlight the pure, natural character of Chile´s South Pacific Coast.

Winemaking Details:

The grapes were handpicked and carefully transferred into the winery for quick processing. Once in the winery the grapes went through a delicate bunch selection process prior to destemming and crushing. Gentle free run juice from the press was transferred into stainless steel tanks for a 12 hour decanting process. The clean juice was racked and prepared for fermentation with neutral yeast. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 12-15 °C, helping to ensure good aroma retention and crisp mineral characteristics by extending the fermentation length. Our Wave Series wines are unmasked, pure reflections of what the vineyards produce. The wines are bottled young without any oak contact to show the character, vibrancy and freshness Sauvignon Blanc can achieve in the South Pacific coast of Chile.
