Wine Enthusiast: Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc among the Top 3 Chilean wines


terrTerrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 and Sauvignon Blanc 2012 among the Top 3 Chilean wines in their categories, in the celebrated Wine Enthusiast magazine.

In its December edition, the American magazine Wine Enthusiast gave 92 points to Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 and 90 points to the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, placing both among the three best Chilean wines in their respective varieties and vintages.

The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Pirque Viejo vineyard in the Maipo Valley, while the Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Los Boldos vineyard in the Casablanca Valley.

Both wines are prepared by the winemaker Ignacio Recabarren.

92 pts. Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

“Firm berry and plum aromas come with equal amounts of spice, oak and earthy notes. This is forward and concentrated. Loamy blackberry and blueberry flavors get a boost from tobacco, licorice and chocolate accents before finishing muscular and spicy. Drink through 2022.” (Michael Schachner)

90 pts. Sauvignon Blanc 2012

“This perennially excellent wine is as good as you’ll find in 2012. Scallion, lime and other green aromas precede a zesty, hard-driving palate. Sea shell, grapefruit, lime and chervil flavors set up a tight, minerally finish.” (Michael Schachner)
