The grapes for the Cordillera Sauvignon Blanc from Miguel Torres Chile grow in the Valle de Elqui in the beautiful Chilean wine-growing region of Coquimbo.
This pure wine shimmers in the glass in a delicate straw yellow with greenish highlights. The bouquet reveals intense aromas of juicy fresh citrus fruits with the typical piquant notes of yellow pepper and fine hints of chilli. This Chilean white wine convinces the palate with a fresh, multi-layered texture, which harmonizes wonderfully with the racy acidity and clear minerality. The finish has a nice length and a fruity aroma.
Vinification of Torres Cordillera Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes for this Chilean white wine are harvested in March. The grapes are immediately brought to the winery where they are first macerated for 3 hours and then slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled, cool temperature (15 to 16 Gad Celsius). In order to preserve the character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape and its wonderful freshness, this white wine is aged exclusively in stainless steel tanks.
