El Viejo del Valle Sauvignon Gris
Sauvignon Gris tends to mature very early and has a high sugar level. The grapes are a beautiful dusky pink/apricot colour and they have thick skins. Sourced from a very small plot in the Casablanca Valley, these low yielding vines were first planted when cuttings were brought over to Chile by European settlers.
A single varietal Sauvignon Gris wine. The grapes are crushed and gently pressed to achieve fresh, clear, elegant juice. This is then fermented slowly at cool temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters. No oak is used on this wine.
What does it go with?
This has bags of character and personality and really impresses in the glass with food. Try it with a variety of dishes such as scallops with mushrooms and white wine sauce, BBQ garlic prawns or salmon, grilled oysters, and poached white fish with summer salads containing parsley, pepper or lemon.
