VIÑA CARMEN - DO FLORILLÓN #2 - 0,75L - 2018 - CHILE
Viña Carmen Florillón # 2 is a 100% Semillón white wine. Intense aroma, lemon notes, creamy and sweet in the mouth with great subtlety and complexity.
Florillón # 2 takes its name from the unique process by which it is made. It is a white wine made from Semillon grapes that is produced under biological aging: it consists of the aging of the wine under a yeast veil, also known as a veil of flowers.
The grapes were hand picked, and upon arriving at the vineyard, they were processed without protection from oxidation and pressed in a vertical press. The juice was decanted at 10ºC using the grapes’ natural enzymes, and the clean must was racked to 5th-use oak barrels, where it was fermented with native yeasts. It was held on its lees for 8 months and then aged under a veil of flor for 4 months. The wine was neither fined nor filtered before being bottled by hand.
This vineyard was planted in 1958 on soils of granitic origin in the Apalta (Colchagua). The grapes ripen early with good concentration and greatelegance. Moderately deep soils with deep clay beneath an alteration of granitic bedrock make this sector of Apalta a bit different from the rest. Don Juan Quijada has worked his family vineyards for years and produces truly impressive wines. This wine is a tribute to the union of wineries and producers who have dedicated their lives to magical vineyards.
This golden yellow wine shows tremendous character and complexity as a result of its biological aging. We find aromas of peaches, cherimoyas, citrus notes, and almond-like fruits. The palate stands out for its lively attack with a sharp edge that lingers on the finish.
