Sauvignon Blanc Maipo Valley de Martino Südamerika Chile 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Las Cruces, an exemplary terroir-driven wine, is a limited-production blend from one of the most unique vineyard sites in Chile. The Mediterranean climate causes these 2 varieties to ripen at approximately the same time. A selective hand-harvest took place in mid-March. Immediately pressed upon arrival at the cellar, the juice underwent a cold maceration for 7 days in stainless steel tanks at 8-10°C. Fermentation occurred over a period of 9 days at 26-28°C, followed by another 9-day maceration. Full malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was aged in new French oak barriques for 14 months, before being filtered and bottled.

San Martiño Winery & Vineyards opened its doors in the spring of 2004. We are a small family-owned winery specializing in handcrafted wines using modern techniques but with a traditional “soul” borne in the fertile lands of northwestern Spain. The village of San Martiño, (see picture below), located in the mountains of the Galician region, has been making traditional wines for hundreds of years. It was at the village of San Martiño that our love and knowledge of wine and wine making techniques started. Through years of watching and helping our family in the vineyard we came to appreciate the special relationship between people, their land and the food they grow. Our Texas winery was created by borrowing from the traditions of the San Martiño village and its people, the tenacity and resolution of our family and learned modern wine-making techniques. Our heritage is rich and although we are not Texas largest winery, we aim to be the best!. Here you can watch us grow and participate with us as we travel together in this adventure because we know that without you we are not. So come by and visit with us while relaxing with a glass or bottle of one of our wines. Bring a picnic and enjoy a break from the rat race. Read less

The lesson I learned about De Martino wines is that they are spicy. This is yet another spicy wine. This one is smooth and hearty. Give me some dark chocolate, a basket of strawberries, A rom-com movie, and a bottle of this wine, and I'm set for the evening. 91/100

    A blend of 66% Malbec and 34% Carmenere with a SRP of $45. Dark red in color with aromas of dark chocolate and concord grapes. Flavors of fruit and bell pepper, prominent flavors in both Malbec and Carmenere, seemed to be fighting each other with neither one being able to win. While I didn’t dislike the wine, I don’t know that I could justify paying $45 for it. thegoodwineguru.com

    Single Vineyard Old Bush Vines Las Cruces 2006 - De Martino : Single Vineyard "Old Bush Vines Las Cruces" 2006 - Rotwein von De Martino / Santa InesOld Bush Vines Las Cruces leuchtet in einer violetten Farbe, wobei sein Bukett intensiv und ausgeglichen wirkt. Wir finden hier zahlreiche Blumennoten und subtile Noten, die an reife rote Früchte und süßes Gewürz erinnern. Die Aromen aus der Eichenholzreife wurden hierbei wundervoll integriert, wobei sie an Eleganz aufweisen, die selten ein chilenischer Wein erzielen kann. Er schmeckt voll und komplex, wobei die reifen Gerbsäuren auffallen, die seidig den Gaumen entlang gleiten und zu einem langen, genüsslichen Finale führen. Zu Gerichten von Lamm oder Wildbret eignet er sich am besten.Weingut: De Martino / Santa InesLand: ChileRegion: Cachapoal ValleyRebsorten: 65% Malbec, 35% CarmenereAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol. %Restsüße: trockenInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (14 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Auszeichnungen des De Martino Single Vineyard "Old Bush Vines Las Cruces" 2006:Silver Medal, International Wine Challenge 2008 Rotwein > Chile > Cachapoal Valley

    Tasting Notes:

    An intense bouquet of ripe dark fruits with intertwined hints of cedar spice and cocoa fills the nose. It is full-bodied and complex with good acidity, firm tannins and fruit and oak flavors that are well-integrated giving the wine a rounded, elegant finish.
