Winemaker's Notes

This delightful wine is made from fruit from the cool Casablanca Valley and demonstrates the promise of Chile's celebrated grape. It owes its complexity to the purity of the 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit and skillful winemaking rather than external influences, such as oak. The aromas of mandarin orange and lemon zest, with an underpinning of ginger, harmonize nicely with ripe tropical and citrus flavors. The succulent ripeness coupled with brisk acidity ensure a refreshing and lasting finish, making this wine a classic partner with food.

Critical Acclaim

"This delightful white wine owes its complexity to the purity of excellent fruit. Brisk acidity ensures a refreshing, lasting finish — make this wine a classic partner with food."
89 Points

"Light yellow. Bright, pungent scents of lime zest and pink grapefruit, with a zesty jalapeno accent. Racy, firm and dry, with riper suggestions of pear and beeswax giving depth to the citrus flavors. Finishes dusty and firm, with modest persistence but good clarity."

Learn About Chile

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....
