Marichal Sauvignon Blanc 2012 (6x 750mL)

Uruguay is lesser known for it's white wines yet produces exceptionally fine, white wines.

On the palate it is intense yet delicate at the same time, showing great balance and a long finish.

Food Matching: Enjoy as an aperitif or with salads, white meat and poultry dishes, even those with creamy sauces.

Viticulture & Winemaking: This wine is made from grapes grown in the Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, located only 30 metres away from the winery, on the land originally bought by the family in 1916. Grapes are hand picked in 18kg boxes in the morning and promptly taken in small cases into the winery. After manually selecting the bunches in the winery, grapes are destemmed and crushed at high pressure to extract as much juice as possible from them. The must and skins are immediately placed in concrete vats and left to cold maceration for approximately six hours until the end of the afternoon when the first must is extracted. This must has been previously stripped at low temperature. Then fermentation occurs using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature. Once the fermentation process is complete, the wine is left in contact with the lees for several days; the exact amount of time is determined by tasting. After that, the wine is racked for clarification and filtration. The wine is bottled upon cold stabilization, avoiding further fermentation in oak barrels and malolactic fermentation in order to keep the fresh, elegant, and fruity character of a young wine.
