Sauvignon Blanc Maule 2020

Manta’s Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from life-long growers, all in the central part of Chile known as “Maule Valley”. Gravel and laterite soils predominate in most of the best vineyards with some sandy loam soils in other areas. A range of canopy management strategies is employed with the objective of maximizing sunlight into the fruiting zone. The most favored technique is vertical shoot positioning which improves sunlight exposure, thereby enhancing fruit flavor development. Irrigation is used judiciously to maintain balance vine growth and a steady rate of ripening. Fruit was harvested manually to ensure its arrival to the winery in good conditions. A small amount of SO2 is added to the fruit before crushing and de-stemming sent through a must chiller to a tank press. The juice is gently and slowly pressed from the skins receiving skin contact for further flavor extraction. The juice was racked off all lees and fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. All batches were bentonite fined and bottling took place in August.
