Tamaya Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2014 (12 x 750mL), Limar Valley, Chile.

Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes: Very pale yellow with brilliant, slightly green shades. This refreshing wine expresses herbal notes with fruit that is ripe but vibrant, with green apples, green pears and grapefruit, white peach, hints of green chillies and more exotic touches such as passion fruit. The mouth begins sharp and fresh and then develops good volume with excellent richness for the variety. The mineral column gives the structure, helped by a vibrant and juicy acidity with flavours that are nevertheless fruity and complex. The finish is pure and vibrant with white and tropical fruits enhanced by floral and mineral accents.

Vineyard: Tamaya Vineyard, Limarí Valley – Chile

Age of the Vineyard: Planted in 1997 (four years grafted)

Time of Harvest: Last two weeks of February

Altitude: 240 metres above sea level

Harvest Method: Handpicked into 12kg containers from specially prepared blocks

Winemaking: The grapes were hand picked between the first week of February, especially soon this year, coming from special prepared blocks. The grapes were destemmed and pressed in a pneumatic press. The juice remained on the skins for an average of 6 hours before being gently extracted at low pressure and statically decanted in stainless steel tanks until limpidity between 100 and 250 NTU is obtained. The clean must is then transferred to a fermentation tank and inoculated with selected yeasts to highlight the natural aromas of the grape. Alcoholic fermentation took place at 14°–16oC (57°–61°F) and allowed to remain in the tanks with carbonic gas and daily lees stirring for an additional ten days. A smaller part, around 10%, is directly fermented in 4 years old French oak barrels in order to get more structure and complexity and grown during some months.
