The white blend Appellation Luján de Cuyo White Clay was produced with 60% Semillon and 40% Chenin Blanc from white clay soils, as the name points out. The grapes were harvested quite early and then fermented in stainless steel, managing to keep the alcohol to 13.5% in this warm and dry year. It's balsamic and medicinal, with notes of yellow fruit and some spicy smokiness, as 35% of the wine matured in new barrels for seven to eight months. It's soft and creamy without excess, combining volume and tasty flavors and a bitter twist in the finish.
