"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."
"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."
The Wine Advocate
"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."
The Wine News
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.
