La Leyenda de las Cruces Sauvignon Blanc Valle de Leyda DO

2020

In a Nutshell

Sauvignon Blanc grapes from three excellent sites across the Leyda and San Antonio D.O.

Tasting Notes

Pale yellow with green highlights. It shows intense aromas of pure pink grapefruit, peach and a herbaceous nettley character. The zesty palate is vibrant with lots of citrus and stone fruit flavours, crunchy texture and a delightful mouth-watering finish.

Production Notes

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in three excellent sites across the Leyda and San Antonio D.O., close to the town named after a legendary shipwreck, Las Cruces. The proximity of the vineyards to the Pacific Ocean (only 10km’s away) and its fresh coastal breezes ensures grapes ripen slowly. This allows the grapes to retain their natural citrus flavours and freshness but also to develop great aromatics. Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Leyda are some of the first to be harvested in Chile, and winemaking is simple to preserve this crunchy, bright fruit. Cool fermentation in stainless steel is followed by a couple of months on their fine lees which adds texture and depth. Bottled early to retain the primary characters, flavours and freshness of this enchanting fruit.
