Mía Chenin blanc 2020
The wine has a pale straw colour with bright green tinge. We aimed at making a fresh and primary
fruit driven wine. The nose is vibrant with concentrated aromas of citrus and pineapple. On the palate
lime and grapefruit meets quince with a crisp, refreshing acidity. This is a perfectly balanced wine that
should be enjoyed in good company.

Vinification
The grapes are harvested by hand into bins the morning of 12 February 2019 at 21.8˚B. The grapes are
then cooled before they are lightly crushed and pressed. The free-run juice was allowed to settle
overnight at 8°Celsius using pectolytic enzymes. The juice is covered with carbon dioxide blankets to
prevent oxidation. The wine is then inoculated, and fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a
constant temperature of 14 - 16°C for approximately 15 days.

Food Pairing
Being a fresh wine with vibrant fruit it will pair well with spring vegetables and salads, especially
chicken or one’s containing fruit like apple or pear. Light seafood pasta dishes and risottos. Fresh line
fish, smoked salmon or trout and it will certainly accompany oysters and sushi very well.
