The word "Kintu" is taken from local dialect and translates as "fine view". The rolling hills and plains of the Valley have been important for viticulture for the last two hundred years and have played a key role in the development of the Chilean wine industry. Vineyards are fanned by cooling ocean breezes and protected by early morning mists, allowing the grapes to maintain their natural acidity whilst attaining full ripeness.
The grapes for this wine are grown on sandy loam soils.
Fermentation is slow and cool in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. selected yeasts encourage the retention of natural aromas and primary fruit flavours to be captured. Before bottling, the wine is cold stabilised and filtered.
Kintu Sauvignon Blanc is fresh, crisp and unoaked, with prominent citrus and tropical fruit flavours.
Serve as an aperitif, lightly chilled or with light poultry, fish dishes and salads.
