Crisp, with lime, chalk and sweet pea notes backed by a steely finish. Drink now. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
Los Vascos is fast becoming the leader in value-priced Sauvignon Blanc from the Casablanca Valley. This is the winery's best effort to date, and it delivers a champion's blast of green apple and citrus aromas. The palate is lively as can be, and it houses fine but also defined lemon and lime flavors. Refreshing as a walk under a cascade; clean and scouring.
The bouquet is all about green herbs, cactus pad, passion fruit and citrus. The palate transitions from lemon-lime to tropical pineapple and passion fruit, while the finish is zesty.
Bright straw. Spice and herb-accented aromas of citrus zest and green apple, enriched by a deeper honeysuckle nuance. Dry, taut and linear, offering dusty lemon and grapefruit flavors, along with a suggestion of melon. Shows good clarity and closes with fine cut and lingering spiciness. I like this wineandrsquo;s uncompromising character.
The nose shows the traditional andldquo;wildandrdquo; and expressive aromas of Sauvignon Blanc: boxwood and shrub followed by notes of chives and fruit such as pineapple, lime, green apple and white peach. The mouth is fresh, juicy and balanced. Good persistence. The grapes from Casablanca and Leyda bring in a fruity and mineral touch, while those from the Andean foothills contribute with volume and a creamy texture.
Although the aromas are timid, hinting at fresh herbs, the structure of this sauvignon is powerful andmdash; almost tannic andmdash; surrounded by a lemony acidity that bridges the wineandrsquo;s power and juicy citrus flavors.
If I asked you where great Sauvignon Blanc comes from, what would be your answer? What about Chile? Not your first choice? I'll admit that I'm often guilty of forgetting that great, attractively priced Sauvignon Blanc often comes from Chile. It's easy to forget when wines from Marlborough and Sancerre get all of the hype and press. The famous Lafite-Rothschild winemaking family has made great strides with their Chilean wines in recent years, and it is quickly apparent in this fresh and very lively wine. The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc has concentrated flavors and aromas of fresh pineapple and Granny Smith apple, and hints of lemon pepper and wet stones. Here's a hint: don't serve it quite so cold, as you'll miss out on some of those nuances.
This wine is characterized by its soft yellow colour with green highlights. The nose expresses a complex range of aromas such as lime, white peach, prickly pear, pineapple, green apple, lychee and mango. One finds select vegetal notes of chives and boxwood. The palate is consistent, lively and fresh with good volume and a remarkable persistence. To enjoy the wine fully, it should be drunk young, within two years. While it is a great appetizer, all of its potential can be tapped with shellfish and salads. It should be served very cold at between 10-12°C.
