Winery Notes:
Our Cartagena Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes that grow along the higher vineyard flats with direct exposure to the Pacific Ocean. These locations do not experience steep temperature drops at night in comparison to the lower parts of the vineyard where we experience frosts, creating a special micro climate which allows the vines to produce good natural yields between 5 and 6 tons per hectare. The soil consists mainly of loam (an equal mix of silt, clay and sand) and grapes are generally harvested during the last week of March. This French 242 clone yields a friendly, rich, and full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc with a lovely texture, notes of peaches and sliced apple combined with fresh bell pepper and asparagus. The fresh acidity and salinity of the Pacific Ocean results in a complex and balanced wine.
