Portillo Sauvignon Blanc 2012 750ml

Portillo Sauvignon Blanc

Greenish yellow, with golden tints. A wine with supple aromas, reminiscent of citrus fruits like pink grapefruit, tropical fruits, most noticeably, white ripe peach, intermingled with rue. Crispy, persistent palate, with marked acidity.

The grapes are harvested after midnight, when temperatures go down to 50°F-53°F. After de-stemming, the berries are transferred to the wine press, where a short cold maceration takes place with dry ice (4 to 6 hours at 46-50°F). Gentle pressing is performed and the must is sent to stainless steel tanks where the lees are allowed to settle for 48 hours. The must is racked to another tank where cool fermentation takes place, using select yeasts specific for Sauvignon Blanc. After fermentation, the wine is racked by gravity, without using pumps, to stainless steel tanks for storage.

Serve as an aperitif or with seafood, salads, pizza, sushi and white meats.
