De Martino Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2005
from Chile, South America
The DeMartino family has been producing wine in Chile's famous Maipo Valley for almost 70 years. Delicate use of oak adds complexity, but the strength of DeMartino wines is in their fruit, which results in big, rich, extracted flavors. These wines are concentrated yet elegant, each with a distinctive personality.
DeMartino first began producing organic wines in 1991. From the pruning to the harvest, De Martino's organic wines are produced under the auspices of the Organic Management Program, certified by BCS Oko-Garantie. The organic grapes, which are grown in their own Isla de Maipo estate on the De Martino property, have permanent green cover crops between rows to facilitate biodiversity in the vineyard. The hand-picked grapes are fermented in their own yeasts and require a minimum of sulfur.
This 100% Sauvignon Blanc has a bright yellow color with an expressive aroma of grass, citrus and white peach. On the palate it is crisp and well-balanced with an abundance of fruit, coupled with a vibrant acidity and luxuriously long finish. Ideal with smoked cheeses, fish and oysters.
