Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow in color with green reflections, Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc displays expressive fruit notes of gooseberries, lime and grapefruit intertwined with herbs. A medium-full bodied wine with ripe citrus flavors, herbal hints and fresh minerality. Crisp acidity is followed by a juicy, lingering finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc from the Casablanca Valley is produced by Ignacio Recabarren in Puente Alto. They sometimes harvest at night, since they have to transport the grapes in trucks for some 100 kilometers. It’s from a riper vintage, but still fresh in the region. It’s very Sauvignon, with aromas of grapefruit and lime with bare hints of greengage, a powerful palate, very apt for the table. The wine offers plenty of chalky, marine, saline notes, superb acidity and an unctuous texture. This is a very good Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2012 vintage was so hot in Chile that harvests came very early. Thus finding mature, complex SBs in this year won’t be easy. This perennially excellent wine is as good as you’ll find in 2012. Scallion, lime and other green aromas precede a zesty, hard-driving palate. Sea shell, grapefruit, lime and chervil flavors set up a tight, minerally finish.

Terrunyo, Casablanca Valley, Chile
Image of winery
Inspiration for the Terrunyo collection of fine wines comes from a desire to identify and celebrate some of the finest parcels of vines within the estate-owned vineyards of Concha y Toro. Each Terrunyo (from terruño, the Spanish word for terroir) wine starts out with hand-picked fruit sourced from a cluster of vines in a well-delimited vineyard in which a micro-climate, the chosen grape stock, a select piece of soil and the expert hand of man interact, magically creating perfect harmony and delivering unrivaled quality.

Casablanca Valley

View all wine

A region that has become synonymous with some of the best whites of Chile, the Casablanca Valley is full of dozens of bodegas who either grow fruit here or come from outside to source from local growers for their own white wine programs. The valley runs from east to west, which means that its westernmost vineyards receive the most cooling influence from the reliable afternoon sea breezes. The soils also tend to be heavier in clay in the west, whereas the eastern end of the valley is warmer and its soils are predominantly granitic. Sauvignon blanc thrives here, Chardonnay does well and Pinot noir is not uncommon.

Sauvignon Blanc

View all wine

A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon Blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. A couple of commonalities always exist, however—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and is important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand and California, while Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon Blanc. High-quality Sauvignon Blanc is also produced in Washington State, Australia, and parts of northern Italy.

In the Glass

From its homeland in the Loire Valley, where citrus, flinty, and smoky flavors shine through in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume, to Marlborough, New Zealand, where it is pungent, racy, and “green” (think grass, leaves, gooseberries, and bell peppers) and tastes of grapefruit and passionfruit, Sauvignon Blanc has something to offer every wine drinker. In Bordeaux, it is typically blended with Sémillon and Muscadelle to produce a softer, richer style. In California, any of the aforementioned styles can be emulated.

Perfect Pairings

The freshness of Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor—from bell pepper and cut grass to passionfruit, gooseberry, and ripe kiwi lend it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood, and mild Asian dishes. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like goat cheese and asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it can be paired with more complex seafood and chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secret

Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is the proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (an herbaceous aromatic compound) inherent to each member of the family.
