Concha Y Toro Sauvignon Blanc Terrunyo 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were selected from Lot 30 in our El Triangulo vineyard, in the Casablanca Valley, where the ocean influence allows for slow ripening. This, in turn, helped 100% of the flavors of this aromatic variety to build up on the grape skin. The gravelly soil with a permeable stratum is very favorable. The south-facing hillside location is perfect for this variety. Region: Casablanca Valley, Chile Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Description: Fresh with of shades of citrus and passion fruit intermingled with hints of sweet green peppers. Exhibits the unique, powerful, assertive character and distinctive style of cold-climate, New World Sauvignon Blancs. Hand picking and reductive handling produced a greenish juice brimming with tropical aromas. Fermentation took place at temperatures ranging from 13ºC to 17ºC. Grapes were picked in three stages in order to increase the range of aromas and flavors available for blending. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks over light lees for nine months. A perfect complement to shellfish and lightly spiced sushi.
