The climate conditions of the 2014-2015 anticipated the beginning of harvest and brought along with it a very particular aromatic intensity. Rainfall in this 2014 winter were higher than the last season (295 mm v/s 238 mm). Only in july rains were lower than usual average. These conditions were followed until the springtime. Overall, summer in our vineyards was dry and hot. Finally march brought normal conditions. We started harvesting at Las Kuras the Sauvignon Blanc on March 3rd and finished on the 18th.
We want to enhance the best fruit that Rapel Valley offers its natural tipicity, structure and natural acidity. Our key points are strict fruit selection, natural juice decantation and low temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. We added 8% of Semillon from our old vines from Apalta vineyard and 6% of Sauvignon Gris; the result is a wine that kept its natural flavor and acidity, delicate notes of white fruit and big complexity in the nose and a rounder mid palate an a crisp acidity.
