Wine made from carefully selected grapes of the Chenin Blanc variety from our vineyards located in the estate Los Carolinos.
– Agrelo (Mendoza River’s High Valley), Luján de Cuyo district, province of Mendoza.
CLIMATE | This privileged area has a particular micro-weather characterized by dry summers, warm and sunny days and cold nights. Grape development is favored by the thermal range, making them reach high concentration of aromas and excellent health.
SOIL | Alluvial, silty-loam, shallow.
TRELLIS SYSTEM | High espalier-trained vineyards. High cultivation density; low yield vines that, associated with the
varietal purity, allow high quality grapes.
HARVEST | By hand, selecting the best clusters so as to have the best grapes for the winemaking. The harvesting moment depends on the grape ripening, a process that’s followed carefully to reach an optimum point with the highest aroma expression.
WINEMAKING | An intimate contact is established with the skins, in stainless steel tanks, where the so-called pellicular maceration takes place at low temperature (8 degrees Celsius for 24 hours), in order to achieve a higher concentration of aromas and flavors characteristic of the variety. Later, the musts, drained by gravity without external pressure, full in aromas, released from the skins, ferment in stainless steel tanks at low temperature (15 degrees Celsius). Once the fermentation is finished, the wine is clarified, stabilized at temperatures of 2 degrees Celsius below zero and filtered. The conservation is carried out in stainless steel tanks.
TASTING | Pale yellow color with greenish reflections, citrus aromas, delicate and elegant. In mouth it is revealed with a great balance and a long finish.
Due to its characteristics it is an ideal wine to accompany fish, seafood, white meats (poultry and game meats), pasta with soft sauces, vegetables and soft cheeses. It is advisable to consume at a temperature of 8-10 degrees Celsius. During their preservation the wines should be kept in cool places and in dim light.
