Winemaker's Notes

Penalolen's Sauvignon Blanc comes from Chile's prestigious cool climate appellation, the Casablanca Valley. With this wine, Penalolen demonstrates how impressive Sauvignon Blanc can be when grown in the right place and guided by a talented winemaker. The use of pure, ripe fruit gives this wine a powerfully rich and complex flavor free from oak or residual sugar. The aromas of mandarin orange and fresh cut flowers, combined with good acidity, make this Sauvignon Blanc a classic partner for food.

Critical Acclaim

"Light yellow. Intensely perfumed bouquet of white grapefruit, jalape n o, mint and lemon thyme. Dry, racy, focused citrus and herb flavors offer a light touch but pick up sweeter fruit in the middle palate. This very dry wine verges on austere and shows a distinctly fat-free character. "

I, personally, like sauvignon blancs of this nature; clean finish with upfront nose packed full of aromas: gooseberry, citrus, and that funky green-herbal note that sometimes shows up (this time a tad of tomato plant). The finish could be stronger, but for the price point? Nice little wine. Would pair well with some hard-to-pair foods like asparagus and artichokes.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
