Wine & Spirits
"The 2007 Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc Block 27 is medium straw-colored with a superb bouquet of freshly cut hay, grapefruit, lemon-lime, and gooseberry. This is followed by a lush, ripe, focused Sauvignon with layers of flavor, superb balance, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. It should drink well for another 1-2 years and offers sensational value. "
The Wine Advocate
"Lean and bracing at first, with flint and lime notes, this slowly opens to show more gooseberry, chive flower and sea salt flavors that ripple through the lengthy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now."
"Terrunyo is arguably Chile’s best SB. This vintage gets going with a touch of green bean but also plenty of passion fruit and pink grapefruit. The palate is ripe, crystal-clear and tangy, and the passion fruit and citrus flavors really drive it home. Expect a racy wine with dynamic pineapple and grapefruit as its cornerstones. "
"Pale straw. Powerfully scented bouquet of lime, pungent herbs, dried flowers and minerals. Zesty and pure, offering vibrant lime, tarragon, mint and honeysuckle flavors and a strong undercurrent of smoky minerals. Richer pear and melon qualities arrive on the finish, which is impressively vibrant and long."

This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
