History of Reserva Sauvignon Blanc Carmenère 2018
The Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenère grapes come from ten and nine-year-old vines, respectively, from Oveja Negra’s La Esperanza, Campo Lindo, and El Huemul blocks located on its estate San Rafael vineyard in the Maule Valley (137 miles south of Santiago and 15 miles from the Andes Mountains range). Canopy management for both varieties optimized shade to protect the grapes from direct sunlight, maintaining a cooler microclimate that triggered greater aromatic intensity and a good natural acidity in the wines. This technique helps also to preserve the herbal character of Carmenére which is vinified as a white wine. Yield was between four and five tons per acre.
