Winemaking

The Maestro Sauvignon blanc was aged in a mix of stainless steel and new French oak tohelp achieve better balance with a less austere profile. Weekly b√Ętonnage (stirring of thesettled lees) was performed to better integrate yeast flavors with fresh tropical and pommelfruit flavors. The fruit was harvested in the cool early morning to help keep the fruit freshand the acids high.

Vintage

The winter was characterized by warmth and dryness, with the arrival of rain and coolerweather only occurring towards the end of March. Although the mild spring allowed for apromising early beginning, the summer surprised us with cool mornings and scorchingafternoons. As a result, the harvest proved to be smaller and more demanding than everbefore. Despite its challenges, the grapes yielded concentrated flavors and remarkableacidity, resulting in wines of utmost excellence.
