Cono Sur Reserva Especial Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Firmly grounded in the spirit of New World winemaking, Cono Sur wines reflect the incredible terroir of South America’s Southern Cone. Surrounded by the Andes Mountains to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Atacama Desert to the north and ancient glaciers to the south, the Southern Cone Cono Sur en Español—sees abundant sunlight, vast day-to-night temperature variations and natural irrigation from mountain snowmelt. It all adds up to extraordinary fruit from unmatched vineyards in Chile.
Balancing innovation, sustainable practices and a fierce dedication to quality, each sip is a masterpiece.
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.
