Winemaker's Notes

"From a granitic slope facing the Pacific Ocean, in the small town of Lo Abarca, this vintage of Cipreses is all about the place - its sharp and severe minerality coming from the soil, its salinity from the sea breezes. Large in scale, ample in flavor and generous in acidity, this is the best Chilean sauvignon of the vintage."
-Wines & Spirits

The Cipreses Vineyard is located at the very top of a hillside slope, with a northern and southern exposure. Extremely windy conditions act as a natural restraining agent on grape yield. The results are very weak vines and low productivity.

Pale straw with a youthful greenish hue. The nose is bursting with aromas of cut grass, lemon zest and citronella. On the palate the wine is surprisingly mouthfilling and complex though scythingly fresh and energetic. Flavours range from herbal through asparagus to ripe lime always with an underlying minerality. Finishes as clean and razor sharp as it starts, although flavours linger tantalizingly.
