Portillo Sauvignon Blanc 750ml    
Sku: 1072099*

Situated on a high plateau in the Uco Valley of Argentina’s Mendoza region, the Portillo (meaning “path” or “gateway”) winery and vineyards are dedicated to making superb quality wines for everyday enjoyment. Harmony with nature is readily apparent in every aspect of this property, which is designed to deliver wines that capture and respect the pristine beauty of their birthplace. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were grown in very select plots in the estate vineyard Finca El Oasis, at 3,445 feet above sea level. Alluvial soils lay atop a gravel bed, with good permeability and drainage.

Tasting notes
Color - Straw yellow Bouquet - Delightful aromas of grapefruit, tropical fruits and passion fruit Taste - A refreshing, crisp, and persistent palate of lychee, mango and pineapple

Wine maker notes
The grapes are harvested after midnight, when temperatures go down to 50F-53F. After destemming, the berries are transferred to the wine press, where a short cold maceration takes place with dry ice (4 to 6 hours at 46-50F). Gentle pressing is performed and the must is sent to stainless steel tanks where the lees are allowed to settle for 48 hours. The must is racked to another tank where cool fermentation takes place, using select yeasts specific for Sauvignon Blanc. After fermentation, the wine is racked by gravity, without using pumps, to stainless steel tanks for storage.
