William Fèvre - Chile
La Misión: Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Our La Misión Sauvignon Blanc vines grow in San Luis de Pirque, located in the Maipo Valley, which was the oldest viticultural region in Chile.
These vines are clones that were directly imported from France by Mr. William Fèvre, and are characterized by their purity.

Winemaking process:

The vinification process begins with a cautious removal of the grapes from the stems, which are then crushed and immediately submitted to a pre-fermentation maceration of eight to twenty hours at a temperature between 12 and 15°C. This maceration increases the Sauvignon Blanc character and intensifies the scents and flavors.

Following the maceration, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks during fifteen days at a constant temperature of 14°C. There is no malo-lactic fermentation.

After an aging of four months with its bio-mass in stainless steel tanks, the Sauvignon Blanc wines are bottled five months following the harvest.

Tasting note:

The aromas of the La Misión Sauvignon Blanc 2008 are fresh and elegant. This wine features notes white peaches, melon and grapefruit.
