Portillo Sauvignon Blanc

Portillo Sauvignon Blanc 750ml    
Sku: 1072099*

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were grown in very select plots in our estate vineyard Finca El Portillo, at 1,100 meters above sea level. Alluvial soils lay atop a gravel bed, with good permeability and drainage.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are harvested after midnight, when temperatures go down to 50F-53F. After de-stemming, 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.
