Winemaker's Notes

Pale yellow with slight green notes.

Fresh and intense. We can feel citric aromas, such as mandarine and lime, blended with mineral hints. We can also distinguish some white flowers. All this gives enough complexity and elegance to show its unique character.

mid palate is very interesting. This, added to its nice acidity and richness, results in a very pleasant wine that invites us to share another glass. By the end of mouth, this blend of complex aromas and acidity remains at last.

The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Amaral is sourced from the cool-climate Leyda Valley. Medium straw-colored, it offered a fragrant bouquet of freshly cut hay, gooseberry, and minerals. This is followed by a beautifully balanced wine with layers of savory flavor, vibrant acidity, and lengthy finish. Drink this Sancerre look-alikeover the next 2-3 years. It is an outstanding value. - Wine Advocate 10/08
