Sauvignon Gris

Curicó Valley

Wines difficult to explain … but that speak by themselves! And surely they did not come from this world…

The purest expression of carefully selected organic grapes, fermented with their native yeasts in clay amphora and minimum intervention.

pure and natural

This is an Orange wine – or Skin-Contact wine – made with the rare Sauvigon Gris grape. It has a 10-month maceration in clay amphoras in order to deliver the purest expression of our grapes its vineyard.

tasting notes

Opaque yellow, cloudy. Fresh white fruit aromas, some stems, soft yellow flowers. Fresh, compact, juicy, long on the palate.

pairing

It pairs very well with Japanese food, hot or cold, such as fatty fish sashimi and ramen. Thai and Cantonese cuisine. Fish with creamy sauces.

Wine

Skin-Contact wine (orange wine) 100% Sauvignon Gris from Curicó Valley, Chile. Made with naturally farmed grapes, without the use of any pesticides. Fermented with native yeasts and aged with its skins for 10 months in clay amphoras. Not fined or filtered, to keep the purest expression of a Sauvignon Gris that surely did not come from this planet!

Vineyard

Los Huañiles in Curicó Valley, Chile. Vineyard planted in 2004 with intense use of animals such as geese, ducks and turkeys to control pests. Surrounded by other organic cultures like cherries and pumpkins. Soils mainly of basalt and granite.

Viticulture

Certified organic farming, focusing on giving the maximum autonomy to the field, amplifying the existing life in the soil and subsoil, to have to intervene as little as possible. Without pesticides or herbicides of any kind. Loads of approx. 15,000 Kgs./Ha.

Winemaking

Hand harvested grapes. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts, without temperature control. The clusters are destemmed, and the berries are gravity-fed to 500 and 700 liters clay amphoras (tinajas), where fermentation takes about 1 month at its own pace. After fermentation, the wine remains in maceration with its skins for about 10 months. Exceptionally in this 2022 vintage, due to a greater micro bacteriological presence (mostly because of rains during the ripening season), we have decided to apply a small dose of sulfites before bottling.

Aging

About 10 months of aging with skin-contact in clay amphoras. After aging, the wine is pressed, racked and bottled without clarification or filtration.

Winemaker

Luca Hodgkinson. He was born and raised in Priorat, Catalonia. Master in Bordeaux, has intentionally “unlearned” much of what he had learned academically. Responsible for the organic conversion of François Lurton’s vineyards in Chile and Argentina, he currently advises various sincere wine projects in Chile.
