Winemaker Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc Garuma is an outstanding example of Leyda terroir. Its cool climatecharacter shows off the maritime influence of Leyda. It displays an elegant minerality with herbaland green chili notes, as well as citric aromas of grapefruit and lime. On the palate it has a sweet,creamy texture, with herbal notes, and a crisp and firm acidity, juiciness and a persistent finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
he 2013 Single Vineyard Garuma Sauvignon Blanc is produced with grapes from a south-facing vineyard, which in the Southern Hemisphere is the cooler orientation, and is the last Sauvignon Blanc to be harvested. The soils where the vineyards are located are rich in calcium carbonate. The must fermented in stainless steel, where the wine aged in contact with the lees for six months. The bottled wine has notes of gooseberries and tomato leaves, and is clean and focused, expressive and direct. It has superb freshness, and in a cold vintage like 2013, it has a razor-sharp palate with pungent flavors, and is refreshing and long, with a mineral finish. A very good Sauvignon at a great price. Drink now-2016.

Snappy aromas of citrus and lime come with minerality on a bouquet that’s pungent but doesn’t punch. This feels clean, friendly and well built; flavors of lime, tangerine and mango finish persistent, with no breakdowns. This is what top Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is all about.

Vina Leyda  Winery Image

Leyda is an innovative winery, that discovered and developed a new viticultural region of Chile: Leyda Valley. Pioneers in cool, coastal viticulture, Leyda is amongst the most awarded wineries in Chile, and is internationally recognized for their Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Also dedicated to using the latest technology to analyze every detail of the region, their ongoing research ensures that each variety performs to its maximum potential. The state-of-the-art equipment with a diverse selection of barrel types ensures that Leyda consistently produces some of Chile’s most expressive, highest-quality wines. The most distinguishing characteristic of Leyda is its location. Nestled in the rolling hills of Chile’s coastal mountain range, in its namesake Leyda Valley. Just eight miles from the Pacific Ocean, the area has a distinctly cool, maritime climate with moderate, rainy winters, dry summers and a unique influence from the sea. Sea breezes and ocean mist carried by the Humboldt Current have a tempering effect on the otherwise hot summers of this latitude. Evening fog moves into the vineyards and dissipates in the early morning, with clear days, lots of sunlight and low relative humidity. These climate characteristics allow grape ripening to take place at a slower pace, prompting a robust development of aromas and fruity flavors, and ensuring a perfect balance of sugar and acidity in the wines. Planted on rolling hills with low-nutrient, loamy-clay soils, the Leyda vineyards are ideal for producing small yields of concentrated grapes. Within the vineyard, the architecture, density and irrigation levels are constantly adjusted to attain the perfect ripening conditions for each variety. The winery uses the most modern equipment for wine production, including pneumatic presses, gentle pumps and a temperature interchange system for both grapes and must. The cellar has 56 stainless steel tanks of varying capacities, each with temperature control systems. This diversity allows Leyda to separate different lots, and then classify the various components for final blending. The winery uses 70% French and 30% American oak barrels, from the world’s most respected coopers and works with different oak styles to obtain more complexity and elegance in its wines.

An officially recognized sub-zone in the southern part of the San Antonio Valley, the Leyda Valley was the original settlement of the wine pioneers who came to the area in the 1990s. They were in search of cooler and wetter growing conditions—as compared to more eastern, drier and often warmer locations.

Planting, which began only in the late 1990s, focused on Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot noir and some limited spots for Syrah. The area continues to receive well-earned accolades for wines of these varieties.
