This Arboleda Sauvignon Blanc from Aconcagua Costa has a straw-yellow colour with green highlights. With extraordinary aromatic intensity, the wine is a true reflection of its terroir and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Its mineral notes are accompanied by green
chilli, tomato leaf, and fresh herbal tones and a sharp aromatic intensity. A refreshing mineral palate and crisp acidity make this wine a fine example of this cold climate variety, which also offers liveliness and exotic fruit for an enjoyably lengthy finish.
"A hint of cream lays into a core of fresh citrus, pineapple and gooseberry notes, remaining focused and pure through the long, mineral-tinged finish."
"The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Aconcagua Costa comes from the Chilhue estate just a few miles from the Pacific. It has a fine, gooseberry and grass clipping bouquet with touches of green asparagus underneath. The palate is crisp and citrusy on the entry with orange rind and white peach, leading to a very composed, fresh finish."
The Wine Advocate
"Pale yellow. Fresh citrus fruit and green apple aromas display a saline quality and a touch of pungent herbs. Salty, penetrating lime pith and melon flavors offer good clarity and a refreshingly bitter quality. Finishes with firm bite and cut, leaving a tangy lime note behind. This fat-free wine is quite grown-up."
