About the Producer
The Boutinot winemaking team has been cultivating connections in Chile for two decades. They source fruit and wine from the Central Valleys with the help of family growers who prioritise quality. Striving for freshness and purity, winemaker Guillaume Letang tours the vineyards each vintage to craft the purest expression of Chile's terroirs.
Vineyard and Winery
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in three excellent sites across the Leyda and San Antonio D.O., close to the town named after a legendary shipwreck, Las Cruces. The proximity of the vineyards to the Pacific Ocean (only 10km’s away) and its fresh coastal breezes ensures grapes ripen slowly. This allows the grapes to retain their natural citrus flavours and freshness but also to develop great aromatics. Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Leyda are some of the first to be harvested in Chile, and winemaking is simple to preserve this crunchy, bright fruit. Cool fermentation in stainless steel is followed by a couple of months on their fine lees which adds texture and depth. We bottle early to retain the primary characters, flavours and freshness of this enchanting fruit.
La Leyenda de Las Cruces Sauvignon Blanc from the town of Las Cruces which takes its name from the memorial to a famous shipwreck in the 19th Century, and the relentless crashing waves of the Pacific are represented here on the label.
