Taste profile from the winemaker: "A delicate and crisp pale gold Sauvignon Blanc. This wine shows good aromatic intensity, with notes of white peach and black current bud. At the palate it is elegant, fresh, and with a long finish. Delicious as an aperitif, or with poultry, seafood, salmon, and salads. Ideal serving temperature is 10-12ÂșC."

ABC Wines review: Fresh gooseberry, citrus, and grass aromas with floral notes are displayed by this wine. Crisp and clean on the palate, the flavors are nicely balanced. The finish begins with a mild acidity and ends with some atringency. A nice wine as an aperitif or with light salads or sandwiches. Our score: Recent Chilean sauvignon blancs rival their New Zealand counterparts in quality and at much lower prices. Above Average, Nearly Excellent. We also rated the vintage Above Average to Excellent.
