The grapes for Aconcagua Costa Sauvignon Blanc 2019 were sourced from the Aconcagua Costa vineyard, located 12 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. Planted by Viña Errázuriz in 2005 and 2009, the soil is composed by a thin layer of loamy texture and placed on a base of clay and metamorphic rock (slate/schist), providing the mineral notes present in the wines that are grown in these vineyards.
The 2019 season was dry and warm. It began with a shortfall of rains by the end of winter and beginning of spring. Nonetheless the absence of rains ensured splendid conditions of our grapes. The harvest goes earlier as this was a dry season, warmer than historical averages. The quality of our vineyards was demonstrated once again given the climatic fluctuations, droughts and high temperatures, delivering grapes of outstanding sanitary conditions and great concentration. In benefit of preserving the aromas and acidity of the wines.
Grapes were handpicked during the early morning between March 19th and 20th and carefully transported to the winery. 30% of the grapes was whole-cluster pressed to obtain greater elegance in the palate, while the remaining 70% is destemmed, crushed and pressed to best preserve their natural acidity. Then, the juice fermented in stainless steel tanks.
