Winemaker's notes:
Selección del Directorio

This wine embodies Santa Helena’s philosophy. A top quality wine, with persistent personality and characteristics along the time.
The grapes come from Leyda Valley, where the vineyards are planted only 12 km away from the Pacific Ocean. The soil conditions, the cool climate and foliage management ensure a balanced plant growth with low yields.

This wine offers a fantastic expression, with citric fruits, peach aromas, and a great freshness. Good volume, great balance and pleasant persistence make it a perfect companion for white meats, fish and seafood.
