Reviews and Ratings

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

Sure fooled me! I tasted this wine blind and was absolutely sure it was from New Zealand, as all its characteristics screamed benchmark Marlborough Sauv Bl. Needless to say I was incorrect. Aromas and flavours are pronounced with key notes of lime zest, grapefruit, canned green beans, passion fruit and green pineapple. The acidity is through he roof with a long mouthwatering 'minerally' lime zest finish. I do not typically go for this style of Sauvignon Blanc but I have to give Chile props for this one. The Casablanca appellation in Chile is producing some quality Sauv Bl at a fraction of the cost their counterparts in New Zealand. Enjoy pairing this light bodied crisp white with shrimp ceviche, grilled seafood skewers or zesty summer salads.
Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

If you like your Sauvignon Blanc crisp and tart then this pale yellow almost clear wine is for you. It has an almost New Zealand like aroma of canned pea and vegetal with a real tart citrus flavour of grapefruit pith.
Lots of acidity on the palate of this Chilean white wine made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in a cool climate valley. - Community Wine Reviews
