Sau­vage Blanc

Decanter - - PROMOTIONAL FEATURE -

This is Ar­gentina’s first sparkling wine made from 100% Sau­vi­gnon Blanc and at 12% it is re­fresh­ingly low in al­co­hol. Pri­mary and sec­ondary fer­men­ta­tion takes place at a low tem­per­a­ture in stain­less steel pro­duc­ing a pale and in­ter­est­ing wine with in­tense aro­mas of or­ange blos­som, white peach and in­trigu­ing touch of mint with a crisp and lively fin­ish. Rosé of Mal­bec This wine is the youngest, fresh­est Ar­gen­tinean Rosé avail­able on the mar­ket. Wine­maker Mar­cos Fer­nan­dez com­ments: ‘Malva, a flower na­tive to Men­doza is the first to bloom an­nounc­ing the ar­rival of spring. Like the Malva, this Rosé cel­e­brates the com­ing of a new sea­son with a brand­new vin­tage. It is fresh in style, pale in colour and made from Mal­bec. The grapes are hand­picked par­tic­u­larly early in the sea­son, usu­ally they are picked in late March or early April, but in this case, it is over the first two weeks of Fe­bru­ary to keep a crisp acid­ity and vi­brant colour. This early pick­ing also en­sures that the rosé is bot­tled in March and on sale in May, mak­ing it the first 2018 Rosé from Ar­gentina to be sold in the mar­ket.
