Hacienda Araucano Sauvignon Blanc 2015

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

We felt this wine had a very strong, possibly slatey taste that could be better balanced with a meal.

Lively intense, first notes are asparagus melted with tropical fruits. These two families of aromas create a balance of a really nice harmony. On the palate, the attack is smooth and tasty, with a lot of structure, nice concentration and final with acidity and freshness.

Everything you could want in a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc; Exotic aromas of tropical fruit, zesty lime with a touch of fresh herbs. Light, easy and dry on the palate. A delightful partner to fish tacos or a citrus salad.

Bodgea Lurton100% Sauvignon Blanc. A highly aromatic variety of Frenchorigin (Loire and Bordeaux) producing very fruity and livelywines. In Chile, there is another variety, called Sauvignonasse,but we do not use it in the production of our “Araucano” range.

Hellgelb. Sehr frisches, tropenfruchtiges Bouqet mit einigen Kräuternoten. Im Gaumen recht weich, etwas CO2, füllig. Gute Balance. Easy drinking.
