Anakena Sauvignon Blanc Rapel Valley 2012

Member Review by vintagevixen:

bought at total wine today. was drawn to the region and the price point. chilled in the freezer for about a half hour and opened with enthusiasm. poured into a white wine glass. extememly pale yellow -- almost crystal clear. huge green apple and pear on the nose with cotton candy and a hint of flowers to follow. buttery mouthfeel but extrememly tart almost like drinking a granny smith jolly rancher. a very light and refreshing wine though overall and highly enjoyable.

In the Rapel Valley, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, school friends Felipe Ibáñez and Jorge Gutiérrez founded Viña Anakena. Their project was to be exceptional and nothing should be left to chance. Convinced that to achieve distinction they must offer the highest quality, they scoured the celebrated wine-producing regions of the world, soaking up the culture and the most up-to-date winery techniques, and found out what was expected of the wines from this remote but well-endowed land. Thus in 1999 the first vineyards were planted in Alto Cachapoal; today Viña Anakena has 155 planted hectares in the Cachapoal Valley, 128 planted hectares in Leyda —San Antonio Valley—, 70 planted hectares in Cerro Ninquén —Colchagua Valley—, and 60 hectares in Las Cabras, Rapel Valley. Anakena wines are exported to more than 40 countries around the world and are constantly praised by the most demanding experts. Read less

An intensely aromatic wine with flavors of gooseberry, mango and lemon. Ripe fruits and crisp acidity combine to give a wonderfully clean and well-structured finish. Named for the beach on Easter Island where the famous statues reside. Perfect with shellfish and lighter fare.

A crisp pale gold Sauvignon Blanc, with intense notes of white peach, pineapple and citrus. On the palate it is fresh, and with a pleasant finish.
