Wines of Chile / Cerro Nevado
Cerro Nevado Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes come from the Central Valley, one of Chile’s main wine-growing areas. The climatic conditions are similar to those of the Mediterranean area, with hot, dry summers and short, mild winters. Due to its proximity to the sea, there is permanent humidity with morning mists, which leads to slow ripening and high quality wines.
Pale lime with herbaceous aromas. On the palate there are lots of fresh citrus notes and tropical fruit. Crisp and lively with an elegant finish.
Ideal for all fish and seafood, and pasta and rice salads.
The grapes are harvested at their optimum ripening moment to obtain a balanced wine with the exact levels of acidity and sugar. The must goes through a cold pre-fermentation maceration period of about 6 hours. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14-16ºC in stainless steel tanks for 15-17 days. The process continues during a short aging period on the lees, giving rise to an elegant, fresh and fruity wine.
