Fresh and mouthwatering. Big dry minerality, tart and tangy. Lime zest, grapefruit, limestone. Tasted 2016 vintage in Nov 2017. A real Crowd pleaser. Accessibly priced. Buy by the case. 88 points.

Grassy and gooseberry nose with crisp and sour tastes of grapefruit rind and lime on the palette. A classic Sauv Blanc that could paired with goat cheese, seafood dishes.

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This was a refreshing Sauve Blanc from Chile. Pale lemon-green colour. Some interesting aromas here of tropical fruit, guava, pineapple and honeydew. Lemon, white grapefruit, stoney graphite notes, nectarine and lots of herbaceous green notes - green celery leaf, bay and tomato leaf. Flavours consist of lemon, peach, green tomatoes, gooseberry and a little bit of cats pee with a few herbal touches.Acidity M+ with and equal M body and finish. Pair with grilled herbal chicken, dill stuffed whitefish and rosemary pork. 85 points - November 2017
Simon Chen reviewed this wine as follows:

Sauv Blanc from a well-known producer, Torres, from Spain. Although spain is not known to produce sauv blanch, this one is grassy and has good acidity. Very textbook sauv blanc that's at a decent price.
From Chile's Central Valley, Miguel Torres Santa Digna Reserva (2016) is a fresh, herb, lemon and grapefruit flavoured Sauvignon Blanc. The winery is fair trade certified for their long and intense efforts in increasing the social responsibility towards their workers. The certification is based on three pillars: good price for the raw materials, equitable (fair) work conditions for all the workers and environmental protection. The winery has been a part of the Torres wine family since 1979. - Community Wine Reviews
