Santa Emiliana are the biggest organic producer in South America, and the vines for this wine come from the cool climate Casablanca Valley, close to the Pacific Ocean, ideal for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The slow-ripening fruit and relatively low yields ensure intensity of flavour and aromas. "Amaluna" is the fusion of the words ama, which refers to "mother" in many languages and luna, which means "moon," a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet.
It’s a pale rosé with a fine bead, with lovely aromatics including some lifted red fruit flavours, but fear not, this is a grown-up traditional method sparkling with a refreshing acidity and clean finish.
Hand-picked grapes were transported immediately to the vineyard and refrigerated overnight before pressing the following day. The must was decanted to obtain clean juice for fermentation. Upon completion of the fermentation process, the new wine was left on its fine lees and stirred weekly (battonage) to enhance complexity. The wine then begins the process of developing its foam through a second fermentation using the traditional (champenoise) method in the bottle (1-2 months) and then the wine remains 6 months in contact with its lees. They are then disgorged, and the dosage is added.
