Winemaker Notes

This Arboleda Sauvignon Blanc from Aconcagua Costa has a straw-yellow colour with green highlights. With extraordinary aromatic intensity, the wine is a true reflection of its terroir and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Its mineral notes are accompanied by green chilli, tomato leaf, and fresh herbal tones and a sharp aromatic intensity. A refreshing mineral palate and crisp acidity make this wine a fine example of this cold climate variety, which also offers liveliness and exotic fruit for an enjoyably lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator
A hint of cream lays into a core of fresh citrus, pineapple and gooseberry notes, remaining focused and pure through the long, mineral-tinged finish.
RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Aconcagua Costa comes from the Chilhue estate just a few miles from the Pacific. It has a fine, gooseberry and grass clipping bouquet with touches of green asparagus underneath. The palate is crisp and citrusy on the entry with orange rind and white peach, leading to a very composed, fresh finish.

Arboleda
Arboleda wines were born in 1999 as part of the shared dream that inspired Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick to realize the potential of Chile as a world class producer of fine wines. The name "Arboleda" in Spanish means "grove of trees" and is a tribute to the native Chilean trees that have been preserved within the vineyards that produce the Arboleda grapes.

The source of the Arboleda grapes comes from two self contained estates within the valley. A stunning hillside property some 40kms inland was acquired and planted in 2000 with a selection of red grape varieties. This property was named "Las Vertientes" due to its natural springs of water. Arboleda red wines aim for complete ripeness, full bodied with high concentration of fruit, complexity and balance.

Arboleda white wines aim to be fresh, crispy with high acidity and intense aromatics. Therefore the vineyards were planted during 2005 in the proximity to the sea, only 14 kms from the Pacific Ocean in a property called "Chilhue", the place of sea gulls in native Mapuche indian language.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
