A clean and fruity wine with a fresh lemon and herbaceous character, refreshing and easy drinking.
These attractively packaged wines are blended especially for Hallgarten Druitt and show the kind of style and value that has put Chilean wines on the map over the past few years. Wonderful value for money.
The grapes are sourced from the Central Valley, where the vines are vertically positioned and spaced at 1.5 x 2.2 m. Drip irrigation takes place to ensure the vines receive the optimum amount of water for vine growth and health. The crops are green harvested to eliminate short shoots and promote a healthy canopy.
Most of the grapes were hand-harvested and only a small fraction of the harvest was picked by machine. Once received at the winery the bunches were carefully selected on the sorting table and pressed. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 12° to 16°C for a period of 14 to 16 days. The temperatures were carefully monitored throughout the vinification in order to preserve the delicate aromatic expression. The wine was stabilised for between 15 to 20 days at 4°C and then earth-filtered, prior to bottling.
An array of mouth-watering citrus aromas that recall grapefruit and limes are underpinned by vibrant herbaceous characters. Bright refreshing acidity and a hint of salty minerality on the long finish.
Ideal with fresh oysters, white fish ceviches and salads. Best served at 10°C
Sauvignon Blanc 100%
