Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow with slight green notes.

Fresh and intense. We can feel citric aromas, such as mandarine and lime, blended with mineral hints. We can also distinguish some white flowers. All this gives enough complexity and elegance to show its unique character.

mid palate is very interesting. This, added to its nice acidity and richness, results in a very pleasant wine that invites us to share another glass. By the end of mouth, this blend of complex aromas and acidity remains at last.

The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Amaral is sourced from the cool-climate Leyda Valley. Medium straw-colored, it offered a fragrant bouquet of freshly cut hay, gooseberry, and minerals. This is followed by a beautifully balanced wine with layers of savory flavor, vibrant acidity, and lengthy finish. Drink this Sancerre look-alikeover the next 2-3 years. It is an outstanding value. - Wine Advocate 10/08

Amaral, South America
At the edge of the Pacific, north of Santiago, Chile’s Leyda Valley is the exciting new source of some of the New World’s most inspired and original cool climate wines. The 1,532-acre Amaral estate is dedicated to showcasing the quality and promise of varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir planted in a terroir that reaps the rewards of granite soils with rich alluvial deposits, a gentle maritime climate and the cooling influences of the Humboldt Current. Finesse, elegance and exceptional purity of flavor are the signature style of these sublime and compelling varietal wines.

One of South America’s most important wine-producing countries, Chile is a reliable source of both budget-friendly wines and premium bottlings. Spanish settlers, Juan Jufre and Diego Garcia de Cáceres, most likely brought Vitis vinifera (Europe’s wine producing vine species) to the Central Valley of Chile some time in the 1550s. But Chile’s modern wine industry is largely the result of heavy investment from the 1990s.

Long and narrow, Chile is geographically isolated, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east and the Atacama desert to the north. These natural borders allowed Chile to avoid the disastrous phylloxera infestation in the late 1800s and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted (as is the case in much of the wine producing world).

Chile’s vineyards vary widely in climate and soil type from north to south. The Coquimbo region in the far north contains the Elqui and Limari Valleys, where minimal rainfall and intense sunlight are offset by chilly breezes from the Humboldt Current. While historically focused solely on Pisco production, today this area finds success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Aconcagua region contains the eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry and home to full-bodied red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot—as well as Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley, which focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The Central Valley is home to the Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys, which produce a wide variety of red and white wines. Maipo in particular is known for Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape. In the up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
