Sauvignon Blanc, Wapisa
Located in San Javier, Rio Negro, Pata- gonia, Argentina, Wapisa is just 25 miles from the Atlantic ocean and is the only winery that exists in this unique coastal terroir. Their vineyard “Finca Los Acantilados” is an estate that stands out for its lime clay soils, good acidity and little organic matter. The terroir is complement- ed by the outstanding thermal amplitude, highlighted by cool maritime breezes that sweep over the vineyards at night, leading to balanced and fruity wines with a touch of salinity and a delicate varietal expression.
“Wapisa” is the indigenous Patagonian word for “whale.” Not only do whales frequent the nearby coast of their vineyards, but a local legend talks of a Wapisa that actually lived on land. These wines, like the Wapisa, are an expression not just of their soils but of the nearby ocean as well.
Citrus and white flowers aromas stand out with a delicate touch of ginger. On the palate citrus flavors with pink grape- fruit and lime accompanied with the tropical guava. It is a fresh and intense specimen, with a balanced acidity.
