Summary: Armador is the Spanish word for “ship owner” and is the name of our original line of wines, launched in 1999. These are vibrant, provocative, and authentic wines with extraordinary fruit and freshness. They aim to show the typicity of each variety grown in our vineyards.
Terroir: This elegant and distinctive Sauvignon Blanc comes from a unique biodynamic vineyard located in the cool San Antonio Valley, just about 15 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, where ideal conditions for this variety are met. Planted on a beautiful granitic hill, its soils provide hints of minerality, which are a defining feature for premium Chilean Sauvignon Blanc.
Vinification: Our San Antonio vines benefit from the microclimate of the Pacific Ocean. Fortunately, we had a mild spring without frost but with pronounced temperature variations throughout the day. Minimum temperatures reached 0.5°C while maximum temperatures reached 24°C in October. In the summer, temperatures returned to more normal conditions.
Intense, fresh and slightly mineral nose with notes of grapefruit and citrus flowers. The palate is well rounded, balanced, and fresh with long and persistent acidity. Easily inviting one to another glass.
