Winemaker's Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc is clear with nice green reflections. The nose has the traditional aromas of Sauvignon Blanc, which are particularly expressive and typical: boxwood, gorse and exotic fruit (pineapple and lime). In the mouth, it is fresh, very juicy and balanced with good persistence. The grapes from Casablanca and Leyda bring minerals to the wine as well as elegance.

Critical Acclaim

"A delicious blend of herbal and citrus flavors, this wine has robust acidity and a touch of minerality. It's a refreshing and juicy sauvignon, ideal for an aperitif."

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. 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....
