Oveja Negra Winemakers Selection Sauvignon Carmenere 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Oveja Negra Reserva Sauvignon Blanc Carmenere comes from the Maule Valley, 260 km (162 mi) south of Santiago. The valley features tremendous geographic diversity and a Mediterranean climate with well-defined seasons, including a warm, dry summer with a significant difference between daytime and night time temperatures and a cold, rainy winter. The average annual precipitation in the valley is 670-700 mm (26-28 in) and occurs primarily in the winter, which ultimately results in greater concentration in the wines. The lack of rain throughout the rest of the year encourages the control of plant vigor, keeps the grape berries small, and helps the bunches ripen uniformly. The Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenère grapes come from our La Esperanza Estate. The vines are 9 - 11 year old vines, respectively, vertically positioned, and planted at a density of 1.5 x 2.2 m. No canopy management is done on the Sauvignon Blanc.Carmenère, on the other hand, receives 2 deleafings during the season. The first takes place during the last week of December on the shoots exposed to the morning sun, and the second in late March on the shoots exposed to the afternoon sun. Both have similar yields of 10-12 tons per hectare, no cluster thinning was necessary. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Carmenere Climate: Warm Mediterranean, with extended dry summers and cold, rainy winters. Soils: Young alluvial soils in evolution, in low position and moderate fertility derived from conglomerates, breccias, tuff, and volcanic ash. Most of the soils are loam to clay-loam in texture. Alcohol: 13.2% Sugar: 1.8g/l Harvest: Sauvignon Blanc: February 26, Carmenère: March 3 Climatic Data:Average maximum temperature (October -April ): 26.66°C (80°F)Average minimum temperature (October -April ): 9.92°C (50°F) Average Daily Temperature Oscillation (October -April ): 16.74°C (63°F)Average Rainfall Winter (Mayo-Agosto ): 346.2 mm (13.6 in) Annual Rainfall : 460.5 mm (18.11 in)
