Amayna Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Strahlendes helles Gelb. In der Nase sehr vielschichtige Aromen; frische Kräuter, Zitronen, exotische Früchte, Blüten sowie mineralische Noten sind zu finden. Herrlich frisch und vollmundig am Gaumen. Ein konzentrierter, aromatischer Sauvignon blanc mit Charakter und schöner Länge.

The Amayna wines have excelled in all categories as a luxury product at a reasonable price. Accolades include Decanter Magazine´s best new world white wine for two years in a row, as well as over 90 points in Wine Spectator and Robert Parker. The winery is located in the Leyda Valley, only 9 miles away from the Pacific Ocean. The Garcés Silva family has long been involved in agriculture, livestock and wine-growing, as well as the beverage, financial, and real-estate industries. The winery that bears the family name was founded by José Antonio Garcés Silva, a business man who acquired the property in the Leyda Valley - San Antonio area, thus becoming one of the pioneers in the area’s vitivinicultural development .

Pale, green-edged straw. Energetic aromas of lime, lemongrass, minerals and honeysuckle are underscored by a subtle note of tarragon. Stains the palate with seemingly weightless citrus and orchard fruit flavors, picking up zesty spice and mineral qualities on the back end. The finish repeats the lemongrass and mineral notes and lingers impressively. I'd stack this up against plenty of the best Loire Valley sauvignon blancs I've had in the last year. Very fresh, with bracing lemon peel, white asparagus and herb notes backed by a clean, salt-tinged finish. Deliciously pure. Drink now. 6,416 cases made. -JM The 2008 Amayna Sauvignon Blanc emits a stylish perfume of fresh herbs, new cut grass, citrus, and melon. Elegant yet mouth-filling, this flavorful effort has superb concentration and length. It is an outstanding value.

Leyda, a sub-region of San Antonio, is located in a valley between the Coastal Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean, running parallel to Chile's Central Valley. This wine has lots of tropical fruit, dominated by white pineapple and white flowers. A dry, distinctively New World Sauvignon Blanc.
