Bodega Colomé `Altura Máxima` Salta Sauvignon Blanc

Bodega Colomé, since 1831, is the oldest working winery in Argentina. It is located in the Upper Calchaquí Valley and has 4 Estates between 1700m and 3111m, the highest altitude of Argentina, making Colomé a unique project in the world.
Altitude, as it generates microclimates and varied terroirs, is a factor that distinguishes Salta from the rest of the regions from Argentina and worldwide and translates into outstanding expression and diversity in wines.
At 3000 meters, the weather conditions are extreme, with late frosts in spring and early ones in autumn.

The grapes were gently pressed and fermentation at 14°C for 20 days with 25% barrel fermented in French oak (second and third use) and the remainder in stainless-steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 8 months on its fine lees before blending and bottling. Occasional lees stirring took place in tank, but not in barrel.

The wine is golden, very complex on the nose, with aromas of lemongrass, white peach and citrus fruits and a subtle creaminess on the palate from the lees stirring.
It has a good body, it is elegant and with a strong persistence.
