Vinho Ancla Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc Orgânico 750ml
Ancla represents the connection between the variety that makes up each wine and its origin, which are the vineyards from which it comes. These wines represent the most personal style of her oenologist, the young Francisca Palacios, where she seeks to portray in each bottle all the organic work carried out in the vineyards, respecting the fruit, its typicality and the biodiversity of the place. These wines radiate fruit and freshness, being both elegant and complex, which makes them unique and representative of their place of origin. 100% Organic Sauvignon Blanc

** About the winery: **
Chilean winery Odfjell has a curious history, which looks more like a fairy tale. Nearly 30 years ago, Norwegian ship owner Dan Odfjell, visiting Chile, fell in love with the sunny lands of the Maipo and Maule valleys. This passion has resulted in one of the most praised projects of Chilean wine today. To conceive it, Dan Odfjell attracted a brilliant team, made up of winemakers Paul Hobbs, from California, and Arnaud Hereu, from Bordeaux, and wine grower Arturo Labbe, from Chile. In 1994, the first vineyards were planted on the property in Vale do Maipo. Odfjell owns a total of 115 hectares of vineyards, with 85 hectares in Maipo and the remainder distributed between Cauquenes, Lontué and Colchagua. Among the chosen varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carménère, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and old Carignan vineyards. The work in the field follows the organic booklet, but the concepts of biodynamics have already been adopted by the winery. Vinification takes place by gravity, which helps to preserve the most authentic aromas of the grape. Currently, Odfjell Vineyards is under the command of Dan's two sons - Laurence and Dan Jr. - with Arnaud Hereu remaining as chief winemaker and Sebastián Bustamante acting as head of viticulture.
