Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is the grape to watch! The cool-climate Leyda Valley is up and coming with some well-crafted easy drinking Sauvignon Blanc (at a bargain) that I foresee rivaling others on the world stage. This wine shows grassy green vegetal, herbal and citrus notes, typical of cool climate Sauv Bl characteristics. The palate is crisp and refreshing with a long lemon grass finish. Enjoy this medium bodied wine with grilled pork souvlaki dipped in tzatziki. Tasted July 2016, @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

I unscrewed the bottle top on December 8, 2015. The aroma presented lemon citrus and sea salt notes. I gave it another swirl and enjoyed the citrus aromas. On the palate I first thought of lemongrass but it was pineapple like the Dole pineapple juice out of the can without the sweetness but with the acid. I had citrus tingly tongue on the after taste. At 12.5% alcohol this was a very easy drinking refreshing wine. It did not take my partner and I long to finish the wine before supper. I recommend this wine as a fun easy drinking offering. And the price was good.
This (2015) Sauvignon Blanc is made in the Leyda region in Chile. Boya Vineyards are influenced by the Pacific Ocean's moderating and cooling breezes bringing cool temperatures and allowing grapes to slowly ripen and develop their character. These cooling breezes also bring a salty tang to the grapes from the sea. Boya Sauvignon Blanc has been cold-fermented with no MLF. - Community Wine Reviews
