Grand Itata Blanco (White)
Forty-five percent Moscatel, thirty percent Riesling, and twenty-five percent Semillon from a blend of old vines in Guarilihue, Itata; the vines date back to the early 1920's in Paleozoic granite soils. Hand-harvested fruit. After gentle crushing in a basket press,the must is fermented at cold temperatures with native yeast. Aged in neutral oak, then in bottle for three months before release.
The nose is vibrant with notes of peach, white flowers, lychee, and mandarin orange that lead to a soft but stony mid palate of star fruit and coconut flakes. A long, complex finish is heightened by the bright acid and mineral qualities.
