Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh complex aromas of passion fruit, grapefruit and lime are balanced by crisp acidity and bright mineral notes that lead to a strong, clean finish.

FOOD PAIRINGS
Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely food-friendly wine that pairs beautifully with rich cream sauces, grilled seafood, pork roast with vegetables, spicy Szechuan chicken salad and baked apple desserts.

About Root 1:

The grapes for Root:1 are hand picked from two of Chile's most well known viticultural regions, Maipo and Colchagua. The wine is grown, harvested, blended, and bottled to create a balanced, fruit forward, expressive Cabernet true to the terroir of Chile's best viticultural regions.
