Cousiño-Macul Classic Sauvignon Blanc 2015

The fruit was harvested at the ends of March. The must was slowly fermented in small stainless steel tanks at 13°C (55° F) during 25 days. To enhance the aromas, several strains of yeast were used to obtain varied and complex aromas. Once the wine was dry, it was clarified, cold stabilized and matured in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

With a pale yellow colour, slight silver reflections, clean and bright our Sauvignon Blanc 2015 presents itself in nose quite intense, fresh tropical fruits, pineapple and melon with some herbal notes. In mouth it shows medium-high acidity leaving a rich and fruity sensation which reminds us to apples and pears with a medium intensity finish.

Food Pairing

This is an ideal wine to use as aperitif or accompaniment for preparations such as oysters with citric sauce and mint leafs, white fish “ceviches” or simple green salads.
