Grape Variety 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Cases Produced 3,000 cases of 6 bottles produced
Tasting Notes Weighty, but lithe and balanced, with a lot in reserve, this wine has a piercing mineralogy that leads the way for floral, powered ginger, lemon verbena, salted butter and thyme notes.  Very long and precise on the finish, this beautiful wine transcends the 2011 vintage.
Winemaker’s Notes The terroir of this special vineyard is yellow granite with quartz stones, and different slope exposures to the elements.  Paredones is such a unique place that it inspired me to create this new wine. From the three different exposures observed in the vineyards, north, south and a flat area, I imagined three different methods to extract what these grapes wanted to express.  I obtained this by harvesting in three different lots and different days, and vinifying each of these in different materials burgundy barrels, concrete eggs and stainless steel tanks. After 10 month working over the fine lees the result of this is that the aromas, balance and mineralogy of this unique place is expressed in every bottle of Koyle Costa.

2014 Technical Data Sheet

Origin Paredones, Colchagua Costa, Chile
Grape Variety 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Cases Produced 933 cajas de 6 botellas.
Tasting Notes Muy elegante, este blanco presenta notas de durazno verde, manzana y pera, lo que aporta una gran mineralidad y frescor. En media boca se resalta la  intensidad y sabrosidad del limon, con un final largo que se traduce por varias notas especiadas y salinidad.
Winemaker’s Notes El terroir de este viñedo especial es de suelos graníticos con piedras de cuarzo y lomajes con diferentes exposiciones al cosmos. Paredones es un lugar único, que me inspiro a crear este nuevo vino. De las tres diferentes exposiciones observadas en el viñedo: norte , sur y área plana, me imagine tres métodos distintos para extraer lo que estas uvas querían expresar. Obtuve esto cosechando en tres diferentes lotes y días distintos, y vinificando cada uno de estos en diferentes materiales: barricas, huevos de concreto y tanques de acero inoxidable. Luego de 12 meses, el resultado es que los aromas, el frescor y la mineralidad de este lugar único esta expresado en cada botella de Koyle Costa.

Tasting Notes Starting with a tangy freshness, with lemon peel, white asparagus, powdered ginger and mineral flavors. Weighty but lithe and balanced, the mineral acidity keeps the finish rolling.
