Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2019 scored 93 points in the October issue of US magazine Wine & Spirits, a historic result that positions the wine as the best Chilean
Sauvignon Blanc from the 2019 vintage.
Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Ucúqer vineyard, located 14 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, in a ravine near the mouth of the Rapel River – where cool sea breezes and Lake Rapel cool the vines allowing them to produce fresh wines, with great complexity, lime aromas and great minerality.
“I wanted to style it as a fresh Sauvignon Blanc, that is easy to drink, paying special attention to give it a balanced acidity. On the nose it expresses minerality, with notes of citrus, lime and grapefruit. On the palate it is fresh, long and intense,” says winemaker Max Weinlaub.
From a vineyard on the left bank of the Rapel River, nine miles from the Pacific, this fresh, briny Sauvignon has a strong coastal influence. The fruit has a persimmon-like note and enough weight to oset the acidity. Try it with sushi rolls to enhance the wine’s typical aromas.” . –J.G.
