Natalie's Score: 92/100

A spirited and energizing Chilean Sauvignon Blanc with lots of texture and mouth-feel. Aromas and flavours of grapefruit pips that make you hungry and thirsty for more wine. More citrus than herbal. Tannins and structure come from the grapes not seeds (which are bitter and are kept tamed by 5 degree maceration). This wine undergoes 100% skin contact for 7 days to get its rich texture. Pair with rich seafood dishes.

Sandro Borghesi rated this wine as 92/100
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fragrant, very citrusy Sauv Blanc with lime, pineapple and asparagus on palate along with briny notes. Lots of texture on the extra-dry mouthfeel.
Tasted Sept 2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Aromatic and enticing! The aromas are BIG! Gooseberry, grass, basil, wild mint and mineral aromas lure you into enjoying a sip of crisp, mouthwatering, expressive Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy this light Chilean white wine with a platter of soft tangy cheeses. Tasted September 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Beautiful texture and body to this cool-climate Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, due to seven days of skin contact and 100% barrel fermentation. Lots of passion fruit, peach and some citrus notes on this wine, along with a bit of a briny character. Perfect for any seafood, but scallops or oysters in particular. Enjoy! (September 2016).
