Casas del Bosque La Cantera Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tasting Notes

This single vineyard wine comes from Casas del Bosque´s estate, located within the coolest, westernmost reaches of the Casablanca Valley. The vines where planted between 2003 and 2014, and are equipped with drip irrigation. Crop levels average 8 tons per hectare (3.4 tons per acre). After picking, the grapes were crushed to a pneumatic press. The resulting juices were left to macerate and cold settle for 5 days following which time they were racked to stainless steel tanks, inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented at temperatures between 12 and 18ºC. Following fermentation the young wine was left for a few weeks on its gross lees (without stirring) before blending. After blending the wine was clarified, cold stabilized and filtered. Bottled occurred on August 27th, 2020. Total production was 3,500 cases.
