Haras de Pirque Albaclara Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Bright yellow with greenish hue, Notes of orange peel, very fresh and spicy with a touch of lemon and mint. Light and fresh, ideal to combine with oysters, entries or just to enjoy it during summer parties! The Gran Reserva wines express the natural evolution of the estate wines. Named after one of the most successful Chilean sire, ALBACLARA, whose name is a tribute to the magnificent sunrises that can be enjoyed by the vineyards, is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc with grapes hand picked from our own estate.
Haras de Pirque is the union of two passions in a unique place where thoroughbred breeding and fine wine elaboration come together. The estate today covers 600 hectares, gently ascending in its southern boundary by the foothills of a transverse cord of the Cordillera de los Andes, in Pirque, Chile. In 1992, this sector of foothills was planted with 120 hectares of vineyards planted mainly with Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, from which they create premium wines and excellence that today gives life to their exclusive and award-winning winery. In addition, 20 more hectares of Syrah and Cabernet Franc were added in 1998.
