External Reviews for Arboleda Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Valley
Fresh and crisp in style, with crunchy acidity supporting the chive, thyme and lemon zest notes. Bracing finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,315 cases made. -JMThe medium straw-colored 2008 Sauvignon Blanc delivers a perfume of citrus and passion fruit with some fresh herb notes in the background. It bears a resemblance to its first cousin, the 2008 Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc, but without the same degree of concentration and depth. Nevertheless, it is a fine effort for drinking over the next 12-18 months.Light yellow. Pungent, impressively precise aromas of lime, grapefruit, herbs and smoky minerals. Deeper orchard fruits dominate the palate, with bitter citrus zest notes adding grip and slow-mounting minerality contributing a dry edge. The firm finish shows good grip and cut. On the austere side and sure to please those who like their white wines fat-free.
