Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Good clarity with light straw color. Medium-bodied with tropical and citrus fruit flavors of white grapefruit and lime with a long crisp finish and some minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"From the warmer, eastern reaches of Casablanca, this sauvignon is generous in its citrus flavors, balanced by refreshing acidity."

Wish I had bought a couple of cases. This was a fantastic Sauv Blanc and seems to be out of stock everywhere. Very clean and bright without too much astringency. One of the best of its kind.

This is an excellent every-day wine that goes with most of the seafood we eat. It has a wonderful grapefruit aroma - lots of citrus. Oops, I see I echoed the winemaker's note.

This is a good solid savignon blanc. Not a great one but for the price this is a very good value. I have served it next to $20 bottles and it was just as good if not better. So yes I would buy a case or two of this and serve it all day long by its self or with some fish!

Pair with: Seafood, Chicken > Lemon/Citrus
It's truly like drinking a grapefruit as the citrus nature of the wine hits the nose upon opening and follows through with an acidic finish that cleans away any signs of what you may have eaten with it. Definitely a wine you want to have with your dinner of fish, chicken, or other lite fare. A very good bargain for such quality!

Very well balanced and smooth. Not overly full bodied -- not unlike some blended Italian wines IMHO.

When he spearheaded development of the Veramonte Estate in 1990, there were less than 100 acres of grapevines planted in the Casablanca Valley. The coastal mountain ranges surrounding the Casablanca estate create a unique terroir with a diversity of microclimates. The valley floor's cool climate is reminiscent of...

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....
