Pale yellow in color with green reflections, Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc displays expressive fruit notes of gooseberries, lime and grapefruit intertwined with herbs. A medium-full bodied wine with ripe citrus flavors, herbal hints and fresh minerality. Crisp acidity is followed by a juicy, lingering finish.
"The 2012 Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc from the Casablanca Valley is produced by Ignacio Recabarren in Puente Alto. They sometimes harvest at night, since they have to transport the grapes in trucks for some 100 kilometers. It’s from a riper vintage, but still fresh in the region. It’s very Sauvignon, with aromas of grapefruit and lime with bare hints of greengage, a powerful palate, very apt for the table. The wine offers plenty of chalky, marine, saline notes, superb acidity and an unctuous texture. This is a very good Sauvignon Blanc.

The Wine Advocate
"The 2012 vintage was so hot in Chile that harvests came very early. Thus finding mature, complex SBs in this year won’t be easy. This perennially excellent wine is as good as you’ll find in 2012. Scallion, lime and other green aromas precede a zesty, hard-driving palate. Sea shell, grapefruit, lime and chervil flavors set up a tight, minerally finish."
