Winemaker Edgard Carter seeks to combine sustainable practices with innovative winemaking, to produce fruit-driven wines of real character. The aim is to deliver quality wines at fair prices, made in harmony with nature.
The Sauvignon Blanc in this wine comes from Campo Lindo and la Esperanza vineyard blocks planted in 2004. Shady foliage aims to create a shady canopy to protect the grapes from direct sunlight producing a cooler microclimate for the fruit and thus greater aromatic intensity and a good natural acidity in the final wines.
The grapes were hand-picked in the morning to maintain their freshness and protect them from oxidation. The Carmenère was whole-cluster pressed without prior crushing, a crucial process in preventing colour extraction and producing a cleaner must. The Sauvignon Blanc was crushed before being pressed in a strict environment to prevent oxidation. 30% of the Sauvignon Blanc was cold macerated at 10°C before being pressed. Fermentation lasted approximately 25 days.
