2017 Roberto Henriquez Rivera del Notro Valle del Bio-Bio Blanco
Is a wine made through skin contact during three months. Wine contains two different varieties which were vinified separately. The three varieties used were Corinto, Muscat of Alexandria and semillon which corresponded to a fresh zone from Itata Valley with alcohol values of 12.3 %. Wine was processed without filtering nor stabilization.
This wine is quite unique. Corinto is harvested first (earliest to ripen) then Muscat, then Semillon, last. Corinto is the same varietal as Chasselas but has a higher acidity and minerality here with hints of bacon fat and pineapple. Semillon has a sense of cucumber, atypical of the variety but how it grows here. The varietals are fermented separately, then blended.
