It is expressive and purely fruity in the nose. Floral and white fruit notes stand out, which are reminiscent of peach, green apple and orange blossom. It is agile, delicate and elegant in the palate, featuring a persistent and well-defined finish.
Grapes are manually harvested, followed by a bunch selection and whole-bunch pressing at a pressure lower than 1 bar. The grape juice obtained is later decanted at 8°C for 24 hours. The Semillon, the Sauvignon Blanc and the Chardonnay are fermented at a controlled temperature of 16°C for 10 days. The Semillon and the Sauvignon Blanc are fermented in stainless steel tanks and are kept there for 8 months. The Chardonnay is fermented in French oak barrels, where it later undergoes partial malolactic fermentation and is aged there for 8 months, during which the wine is kept in contact with the fine lees in suspension to achieve greater unctuosity. After that, the blend is made, smoothly filtered and bottled.
Founded in 1901 by Don Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca has a long history of producing wine in Argentina. The Arizu family have been producing wine for over 100 years, and they are currently led by their third and fourth generations. Bodega Luigi Bosca is one of the few wine-producers that remains in the hands of its founding family, and was actively involved in the creation of the Luján de Cuyo DOC, the very first appellation in Argentina.
Luigi Bosca owns seven vineyards in the province of Mendoza, all based around Luján de Cuyo. Some of the grape varieties under cultivation date back to the late 1800s when they were first brought from Europe to Argentina. The Mendoza region is famed for its low humidity, clean mountain air, pure mountain water and cool breezes; perfect for the use of biodynamic cultivation techniques.
