2017 Alpamanta "Breva" Lujan de Cuyo Sauvignon Blanc
Alpamanta means "Love to Earth" or "terrior" in the native Quechuan language. A tenet of the region’s ancient Indigenous culture that has promoted a way of working that requires co-existing in harmony with nature and the environment. Taking care of the Earth.
In 2005 Andrej Razumovsky, his cousin André Hoffmann from Switzerland and Jérémie Delecourt from France joined forces to establish a boutique winery in Mendoza, Argentina. They purchased 35 hectares of vineyard in the southern part of Luján de Cuyo, in Urgarteche, where the vineyards sit at a high altitude of 3,117 ft above sea level. The clay soil is dominated by alluvial deposits to allow for good drainage. The area has very low annual rainfall, and ideal fluctuation between day and night time temperatures, all of which makes for optimum grape growing conditions.
Breva is the first harvest of the fig, which also grows at the Alpamanta winery and is the very best fruit of the season. This Sauvignon Blanc is a raw wine bottled, with its lees, for you to recreate at home the sensorial experience of the winemaker. Young and fresh, it expresses aromas of peach, white flower, and dulce de leche. Shake it up before serving.
