The appellation: casablanca valley the casablanca valley is a cool climate area on the northwestern side of chile’s coastal range less than 30 kilometers from the pacific ocean. Our estate occupies the extreme eastern end of the valley and is noted for its gentle pacific breezes and early morning fog making it the ideal climate for producing cool climate varietals. Ritual sauvignon blanc comes from the coolest part of our estate giving us fresh fruit flavors with bright acidity the vintage the 2016 vintage began with favorable conditions given the moderate temperatures that allowed for a slow ripening of the grapes. Together with the organic practices used in the vineyards this gave way to fresh and intense flavors delivering balanced wines with elegant acidity the wine intense citrus and floral notes are combined with flavors of white peaches and nectarines that are enhanced by the well integrated acidity. It’s long and vibrant with an impeccable clean smooth finish. Winemaker’s notes grapes are hand harvested at first light maximizing freshness and vibrancy. The fruit undergoes whole cluster pressing and sits for 36 hours. Part is then fermented into concrete eggs another part in neutral oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks. This allows us to create different components which reveal varying aromatics flavors and textures. The wine is aged in each of its containers for eight to ten months working on the lees in order to obtain a smooth and complex mouthfeel without losing its freshness. – alto de casablanca
