Viña Echeverria Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva 

The Echeverrians emigrated from the small Basque town of Amezqueta in 1740 and built their winery in the town of Molina in the province of Curico in the early 1900s. They are still family-owned, family-managed and with a family vision. Roberto has now taken over from his father, Roberto, as chief winemaker. Assisted by winemaker Matias Aguirre and viticulturist Cecilia Silva, Roberto's philosophy lies in grape selection and control of the grape's environment. All grapes either come from their own estates or are rigorously selected from a small coterie of trusted growers.

Vinification
Destemmed and chilled to 8C. 2 to 4 hours skin contact maceration at 10C. Pneumatic pressing and 24 – 36 hours static sedimentation at 8C prior to fermentation. Fermented in stainless steel at 13C constant temperature for 25 days.

Viticulture
Meticulous, labour intensive vineyard management philosophy that takes into account how each vine is reacting to external factors such as soil, nutrients, vegetation growth, bunch compostition and climatic conditions.

Tasting Note
This is a full flavoured wine showing ripe pineapple and tropical fruit fresh flavours with the oak well integrated and harmonious.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Echeverria Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva is best served chilled at 8 to 10C as an aperitif mushroom risottos and vegan creamy soups.
