Description

Haras de Pirque Albaclara Sauv Blanc 2018

The name ‘Albaclara’ is inspired by the splendid dawns that rise over the vineyards. Albaclara is a pure Sauvignon Blanc, whose grapes are hand-picked in the vineyards of Leyda.

Luminous light yellow colour. The intense nose offers striking and vibrant aromas of grapefruit and lemon citrus, fresh green apple and herbal notes. There’s also a hint of pineapple, passionfruit and melon tropical fruit notes in the bouquet. The citrus-y and fresh palate has strong mineral notes and a savoury crispness thanks to its crunchy acidity.

Upon arrival in the cellars, the grapes were destemmed and given a soft pressing. The fermentation, lasting 12–15 days in length, was carried out in 1,200–1,500 litre (315-395 gallon) oak fermenters and at low temperatures in order to maintain the freshness of the grapes. The wine then aged on its fine lees, which were delicately stirred every two weeks.

Fun Fact: Thanks to its historical use as a racing stable, the winery building is shaped like a horse shoe!

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 Patricio Tapia – 93 POINTS

 Haras de Pirque has been buying grapes for about five harvests in the Brisas de Santo Domingo area, just a couple of kilometers from the sea, in the Leyda Valley. In a rather cool year like 2018, this sauvignon shines with its herbal and citrus notes, with a very good mouth, a grippy texture and a sharp acidity. It is a white for oysters.

 There’s almost no notable fruit to the nose, while this feels lean, tangy and acidic. Bell pepper, green bean and lemon flavors tap out on a short finish that tastes mostly of pyrazines and sour citrus.
