Hacienda Araucano Humo Blanco Sauvignon Blanc
Humo Blanco Sauvignon Blanc is crystal clear, brilliant and has a green glint. Intense aromas, with a first nose of green asparagus mixed with tropical fruits like guava and passion fruit. At the palate, the attack is smooth and tasty, with a lot of structure, nice concentration and a finish with acidity and freshness.
Chile is a paradise for vines due to the absence of disease and a fine, stable climate.
Harvest: Hand picking in bins of 500 kg early in the morning to take advantage of low night temperatures. Immediatly brought to the cellar and stored to preserve the freshness of the aromas.
Vinification: The grapes are transferred to a pneumatic press using inert gas to prevent oxidation; they are left to macerate with the skins for 6 to 12 hours, to ensure excellent aromatic extraction. Fermentation is carried out for eight days at a low temperature (16ºC) in stainless steel vats.
Ageing: On the lees for 2 months to achieve greater balance and persistence on the palate
Food Pairing: A ceviche of coquilles st Jacques (scallop) with a maracuya and lime sauce will be the best dish for this wine!
