Critical Acclaim

"Bright and pure, with lots of mâche, sweet pea, chive flower and mineral flavors backed by a bright, tangy finish. This has solid length and richness. Drink now. 3,500 cases made."
90 Points

"The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Floresta from the cool-climate Leyda Valley is a first class effort with an expressive bouquet of minerals, fresh herbs, grapefruit, and gooseberry. Round and complex, the wine has exceptional depth and concentration. Should be consumed over the next 1-2 years."
90 Points

"Reserved scents of slate, minerals and honey. Juicy flavors of lemon cream, green pineapple and cider. Continued impressions of ripe citrus in the lingering close."
90 Points

Sometimes I find it hard to pay more than $14 for a good Sauvignon Blanc, but this one is totally worth it. Typical Chilean SB characteristics - citrus, grass - are backed by beautiful and structured acidity. There are layers here and a complexity not often found in the typical Chilean SB. Lingering finish that makes you come back for more.
