Araucano Reserva Sauvignon Blanc Chile 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit smoky and dense on the nose with some compact dry grass and soft white peach and grapefruit pith aromas along with a dusty top note. This is lovely in the mouth, bright and firm and focused with tension in the mouth and juicy flavors of citrus and sweet apple that extend across the fairly long mineral and tart finish. perhaps leaner and less overtly fruity than many options at this price point, this is a great option for those looking for more acid and some restraint in the Sauvy. 86pts

Hacienda Araucano:
These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years.  The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity
