Corralillo By Matetic - Sauvignon Blanc
Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

This wine combines four different Sauvignon Blanc clones from San Antonio to achieve complexity, volume and acidity.
Harvest: From February 20th until March 20th with yields of 8 to 11 ton/ha. Plots are individually hand-harvested, selecting only grapes with optimal ripening conditions and great potential. Whole bunches are pressed and only destemmed grapes undergo a cold soak for 8 to 10 hours, in order to develop a wine with intense aromatic expression, good volume and freshness.
Fermentation: In stainless steel tanks of different sizes at low temperature for 30 days and then fine lees are pumped-over for 3 months to enhance aromatic complexity and texture.
Color: Yellow brilliant color wine with green hues
Nose: Complex herbal and mineral aromas, citric notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits like papaya and mango.
Palate: A great body and elegance with refreshing acidity and juiciness on the long lasting aftertaste. A difuse taste of fresh tropical fruits, well balanced and agreeable on taste.
Food pairing: Excellent for appetizers and seafood, raw fish, fresh vegetable salads and goat cheese.
Serving temperature: 10° - 12° C
