The Sierra Oriental range is produced by a family winery boasting over a century of land cultivation experience in South America. Their Reserva Sauvignon Blanc uses grapes from Maldonado vineyards with high content of sand, quartz and ballast at 160-260m elevation. Whole grape pressing for a delicate must, with French oak barrels for 6 months of fermentation and ageing, as well as 6 months on lees with weekly battonage. 

Inspired by the Loire Valley, this wine is the palest lemon in appearance, with aromas of nettles, tomato leaf, white flowers and pineapple. There is delightful opulence on the palate, with ripe peach, citrus, guava and passionfruit rounded up with lovely textural style. Try with lightly seasoned white fish, sushi and sashimi, or mild cheeses.

The Diz family moved from Argentina to Uruguay in 1998, where they fell deeply in love with the Maldonado mountain region for continuing their land cultivation and growth of food crops. In 2003 they established La Oriental in Paraje José Ignacio, planting olive trees and red vines, with the first commercial harvest in 2008. It was so successful that the family starting producing wine under their own label, Sierra Oriental, in 2011.
