Château la Caussade Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sainte Croix du Mont 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

We've been lucky enough to have the perfect Sauvignon Blanc harvest for our second vintage, which means we can make it available for you to enjoy by November! The grapes were harvested for maximum flavor and balance, then gently vinified with partial fermentation in French oak for added nuance and body. Our Sauvignon Blanc boasts mouth-watering flavors of grapefruit, gooseberry and passionfruit that linger on the palate, ending in a long, rounded finish with just a hint of vanilla. A great aperitif wine, it also pairs beautifully with simple seafood preparations, fresh salads and light pastas. With this refreshing wine on hand, you'll be looking forward to the next heat wave! A long harvest with warm days and cool nights allowed our Sauvignon Blanc to develop intense flavors while retaining balance and freshness. Oak: French

Lightly herbal on the nose, very crisp and refreshing. A pretty tasty wine. Not screaming grassiness, but enough herbaceous-ness to be varietally true. The bottle had a trio of medals on it: International Winery of the year 2002 (W&S); 2002 Wine Personality of the year (Aurelio Montes - selected by the Chilean Agricultural Society) and New World Winery of the Year 2002 (WE).

    90 points Robert Parker: `The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Vineyard a more serious effort is an unoaked cuvee with an expressive bouquet of spring flowers citrus and fresh herbs. Light- to medium-bodied it exhibits lively white fruit flavors vibrant acidity and excellent balance. This exceptional value has a pure fruit-filled finish.` A Smart Buy from the Wine Spectator: `Bony and chiseled with lots of lime sweet pea and gooseberry notes framed by mouthwatering acidity. Very fresh with solid length. Drink now.`
