Description

A special selection of two different Sauvignon Blanc clones grown in Tapihue, one of the coldest sectors of the Casablanca Valley.

The first clone, Sauvignon Blanc clone 1 gives much of the mouthfeel and freshness to the wine, while clone 242 delivers terrific aromatic character and the distinctive tropical fruits, an exquisite mix and balance to the citrus characters of clone 1. The wine is blended then matured on the lees in stainless tanks for 10 months.

PS Garcia is a project that began in 2006 when Felipe Garcia produced his first wines from Casablanca Valley, the renowned cool climate region just 30km inland from Chile’s Pacific coast. Felipe’s vision was about creating wines of their place, in the early days Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir that would both reflect their place of origin and help further define and develop local identity and terroir.

P.S. Garcia is a project that began in 2006 when Felipe Garcia (left, above) produced his first wines from Casablanca Valley, the renowned cool climate region just 30km inland from Chile's Pacific coast. Felipe's vision was about creating wines of their place, in the early days Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir that would both reflect their place of origin and help further define and develop local identity and terroir. In expanding his regional exploration further south, to the regions of Maule and Itata initially, Felipe began working with the Mendoza family, father Patricio and sons Sergio and Nicholas, and the four formalised the partnership in 2017 with the rebranding and launch of multi-regional wines under the P.S. Garcia label.

Wines are broadly split between single varietal wines appropriate to their place, like the Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noirs from individual regions; wines that reflect a cross-regional approach to blending, taking the best Carignan from Maule and blending it with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from Itata for example; and new growth of overlooked or forgotten old world varietals grafted onto century-old rootstocks, redefining a region or individual vineyard's identity and capabilities.
