A beautiful wine with an even nicer price tag!
Khipu is a a beautiful Chilean range of wines with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Khipu stands for the communication system of the Incas, a series of knotted cords. The Chasquis of messengers travelled in this way with a Khipu through the Central Valley of Chile, the origin of these wines.
The vineyards are located at the foot of the Los Andes mountains, in the Curico and Maule Valley. The surrounding valleys are cool and allow the Sauvignon Blanc to ripen slowly while maintaining its delicate, aromatic profile and slight acidity.
The grapes are deseed and not bruised. 6 a.m. and 6 a.m. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, where the temperature is controlled. After the alcoholic fermentation, there is no malolactic fermentation but the wine remains on the droesem. There's once a week.
Pale lemony color met a green. Fruity aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit and some mineral notes. Dry, 'crispy' flavour with an acidity and in the aftertaste citrus flavours. Ideal as an aperitif, but also beautiful in combination with salads, fresh shellfish, the white fish and seafood in general.
