Limestone Hill 2012

The best block selection from Limarí’s most concentrated chalky limestone soils.

Tasting Notes

Fresh, elegant aromas of apples, pears, lemons with tangerines hints layered by mineral tones. Floral honey and subtle English cream are also present with a buttery whisper beside the soft oak. Deep and structured, the freshness and fruit character are enhanced by mineral accents.

Food Pairing

This is a versatile pairing wine - it could work with anything from firm flakey fish to chicken in a rich cream sauce.

Tech Details

From February 22-27, the vineyard team passed through to pick the healthiest grapes. After a second selection in the winery, whole clusters were pressed lightly and then innoculated with selected yeasts. About 90% of the juice was transferred into new and used French oak (mainly 400-liter barrels from Remond and Adour Grand Cru with medium and light toasts) to continue fermenting, while the rest was fermented in steel tanks. The wine was "batonnaged" twice a week to get better mouthfeel and character. After 10 months in barrels and an additional 2 months in tank, the wine was blended.
