    Winemaker Notes

    Powerful new world style Cabernet blend with a nose chock full of blueberry, cassis, and cedar. The palate is further entertained with dark fruits, chewy tannins, and a great structure. Awesome with meats and cheese. Drink now or set down for a few years..

    Winemaker Marcelo Retamal (named Winemaker of the Year, 2004 Guia de Vinos, Chilean Wine Guide), is a perfectionist in every way. From crush to bottling, Marcelo ensures that each wine is handled with careful attention to detail. His precision in the vineyard and winery has earned Nuevo Mundo the title of Chilean Wine Producer of the Year—International Wine and Spirits Competition, London, November 2005.

    The Maipo Valley is Chile's most well-known wine region and where Chile's first serious wines were made after vine cuttings from Bordeaux where imported during the mid-19th century. Since then, the Maipo Valley has earned a reputation for producing wines that rival those from California. The Maipo Valley is known most for producing fruit-driven and complex reds, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and is capable of making delightful, crisp, fruity whites. Maipo's warm summer days and cool summer nights mimic those of the Napa Valley and its geography shields the vineyards from extreme weather conditions.

    Marcelo's expertise in winemaking, combined with the ideal conditions of the Maipo Valley, contribute to Nuevo Mundo's success at producing top quality wines, vintage after vintage. The wines are pure, clean and true to the terroir of the Maipo Valley.

    With a distinctly Mediterranean climate featuring warm days and cool nights, the Lodi AVA in California’s Central Valley provides growers with ideal conditions for grape-growing. As most of the rain falls in winter months while vines are dormant, the risk of disease and pest problems is low and irrigation can make up for the dry conditions during harvest.

    By a wide margin, Zinfandel is the most successful and widely planted variety in Lodi. Often made from old vines, these wines are robust and fleshy with ripe, plummy fruit and represent excellent value at the lower end of the price spectrum. Over 100 other varieties are grown here, ranging from the classic (Merlot, Chardonnay) to the obscure and experimental (Portugal’s Touriga Nacional, France's Picqpoul).

    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.
