CLIMATE AND CONDITIONS OF HARVEST
Climate: moderate winter rains and spring gave way to a particularly hot summer 2007 that advanced the white grape harvest that had already reached a very balanced maturity.
Harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand completely. The harvest took place in excellent conditions between 28 February and 30 March. The fruit came almost entirely from the Casablanca Valley, with a small contribution from Leyda, both cool valleys and recognized for their outstanding production of white wines. The technical team of winemakers The Basques oversaw these vineyards along the steps of pruning, development and especially harvest.

This Sauvignon Blanc is light in color with beautiful green hues. The nose gives aromas of traditional boxwood, fruits such as pear, pineapple and apple green, vegetal notes and chives. The palate is fresh, juicy and balanced with good persistence. The Grapes of Casablanca and Leyda bring elegance and notes of mineral character to the wine.
