Primera Luz is produced by Viñedos Puertas, a family-run business founded in 1950. The vineyard is comprised of 80 hectares of fields irrigated by water flowing down from the Andes Mountains, and a winery known as El Milagro, located at the heart of the Curico Valley. The wines embody the character of the region, and display brilliant freshness.
The grapes for this wine were picked between mid February and mid March. After de-stemming and pressing the, juice was chilled and settled overnight in stainless steel tanks. After racking off the settled solid, the juice was inoculated with a cultured yeast and fermented at a cool 12 - 16 degrees Celsius to retain the fresh and delicate varietal characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc.
Primera Luz Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw yellow in colour. Aromas of lime and grapefruit core, surrounded by passion fruit notes. Crisp and juicy in the palate, with lime, pear and herbal flavours in delicate balance, with a soft finish.
