EAN Code:

Rooted in the history of Chilean wine production, in 1982, Pablo was the first wine-producer to plant grapes in the Casablanca Valley. He was the first and only vigneron to farm this land over the next four years. Today the valley has over 4,000 hectares of vines. Many wineries in the country followed Pablo's lead, to produce some of their best wines in Casablanca Valley.

A series of value driven wines from one of the most talented winemakers in South America, the wines of Casa Julia are made from sustainably farmed grapes from a few appellations, including Casablanca, Maipo and Rapel Valleys. From these appellations, Pablo has a variety of climates at hand, including plantings in high and low elevations, on the coast and in one of the most southern regions of Chile with a climate similar to Sonoma County, the Maule Valley.

Manta’s Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from life-long growers, all in the central part of Chile known as “Maule Valley”. Gravel and laterite soils predominate in most of the best vineyards with some sandy loam soils in other areas. A range of canopy management strategies is employed with the objective of maximizing sunlight into the fruiting zone. The most favored technique is vertical shoot positioning which improves sunlight exposure, thereby enhancing fruit flavor development. Irrigation is used judiciously to maintain balance vine growth and a steady rate of ripening.

Fruit was harvested manually to ensure its arrival to the winery in good conditions. A small amount of SO2 is added to the fruit before crushing, de-stemming, and being sent through a must chiller to a tank press. The juice is gently and slowly pressed from the skins receiving skin contact for further flavor extraction. The juice was racked off all lees and fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. All batches were bentonite fined and bottling takes place in August.
