Wine from Leyda Valley

The Leyda Valley is located in Chile just 55 miles West of Santiago. A fairly new growing area, established in 1997, the region was previously dedicated to barley and wheat. The Leyda Valley is a sub-region in the San Antonio Valley that was grated an independent appellation status thanks to the styles of wine that are produced. Influenced by the Humboldt Current, which flows from the West coast of the country to Antarctic, the Leyda Valley is located at a latitude of 33°, making it closer to the equator. The geography of the sub-region consists of rolling hills and is 600 feet above sea level. The clay soils lie over a granite base and receive moderate drainage. The fairly cool and dry climate caused man-made irrigation to become a necessity with water being brought in from the Maipo River. The project was made possible by four wealthy founders. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc were the first vines that were planted. Experimentation is still underway with Syrah, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Vern, and Riesling joining the original grape varieties. Today the sub-region has a total of 216 hectares with Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay thriving. The future of the region looks very promising, especially with the addition of Merlot.

Our Special Reserve wines represent the union of tradition and innovation in two generations. The grapes are sourced through careful selection of our best vineyards in the cool coastal Leyda Valley region. Siegel Special Reserve Sauvignon Blanc has a pale yellow color with green hues with an intense and complex aroma of grapefruit and pear accented by mineral notes. The palate is balanced and juicy with a vibrant acidity and a soft, lingering finish.

The grapes are harvested very early in the morning to maintain freshness, the alcoholic fermentation occurs at 14-15°C. When the alcoholic fermentation finishes, one part of the wine is kept on a pump-over programme. Once the wine has been blended it is clarified, then undergoes cold stabilization and then later filtered through soil. On the bottling line it is filtered again through a sterile sheet and a membrane to ensure that it is micro-biologically stable.

Serve with shellfish, fish and sushi.
