Lot 225 Leyda Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: The nose shows guava and mineral with citrus aromas, limes, mandarins, grapefruit and passion fruit. On the palate, it’s super fresh with a playful texture framed by crisp, balanced acidity. With impeccable balance, tropical fruits shine through a long, juicy finish. Cameron Confidential: Last year (2009), our Winemaker, Sam Spencer and I went down to Chile in search of some good wines. We found great wines. We discovered what is arguably some of our best whites to date. This wine in particular shows incredible complexity with such fun texture and structure. Not only is the soil beautiful, but the wines themselves are plain and simply delicious. As some are not as familiar or appreciative of Chile’s wines, if there ever was a wine to change their there while outlook on Chile, it’s this one.
