Viticulture

Vines are around 15 years old planted on a mixture of loam, clay and volcanic soils. A coastal climate, 4km away from the ocean with average temperatures of 15°C. In summer temperatures are not higher than 28°C. Morning fogs and frosts occur in spring and early summer. No rain during growing season. Grapes are handpicked during the last week of March/ first week of April. The timing is very important for this variety, harvested the day before or the day after the perfect ripeness, will be reflected in the outcome of the wine.

Winemaking

Grapes are manually sorted by hand, leaving behind unwanted green materials. The must is cold macerated for 18 hours then gently pressed for 3 hours. The juice is chilled down to 5 degrees and then racked off the lees. 50 % spontaneous fermentation at 15-18 ° C in French oak barrels 500lt. After fermentation, the wine rests on the lees for about two weeks. The other 50% is fermented in stainless steel vats with commercial yeasts at a lower temperature.

Tasting Note

Powerful floral and spicy aromas with a touch of pink grapefruit. The palate is ripe and mouth filling, with a touch of smoky French oak, floral characters and fresh grape flavours. Flavours linger on the palate and the fresh acidity ensures a crisp clean impeccable finish.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2017)
Slightly less expressive and with aromas of dry hay, the 2017 Sauvignon Gris Estero Vineyard has less aromas and a slightly rounder palate, with integrated acidity and tasty flavors. 6,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2017.

Notes of ocean breeze with elegant fragrances of slightly candied citrus, rhubarb and pink grapefruits and hints of green peppers, in which the minerality is a highlight. On the palate it is saline and juicy at the same time with a clear and elegant acidity which continues together with the long finish of this wine. This is a great example of a seductive and fine wine that can be enjoyed for drinking now, or in a few more years.

Aromas of bright cherry and red berry with hints of cool climate cranberry framed in whips of smoky peat hearth fire. Flavours are bright, with firm acid structure supporting the same fruit tones perceptible in the aroma—very persistent! Finish lingers with long, late acid backbone carrying the red berry late into the aftertaste.

This is 'Super Tuscan' which means they tend to use more international grape varieties in their wines. This wine in particular is made Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a very rich, complex wine, with dark berry fruit flavours and hints of tobacco, chocolate and spice.

Nautilus Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Wine Spectator TOP 2018 - The 2016 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc displays intense aromas of ripe passionfruit, elderflower, limes and fresh herbs. The palate introduces a delightful lime/citrus based mouth-watering intensity and finishes with a strong textural component.

Rafael Palacios Louro do Bolo 2021
Rafael Palacios Louro do Bolo 2021
If we had to pick an example of wine to illustrate the word “balance” it would be Louro. It combines the freshness of Galician wines with the richness of lees contact and oak ageing in a very elegant and subtle way. Rich but precise, this is a a real treat for discerning palates.

Planeta Burdese 2016

This is a red wine of great density, structure and balance, produced in limited quantity from selected vineyards. Burdese is a splendid wine for aging that offers a complexity of aromas and flavours, a product of the Sicilian sun
