Penalolen Sauvignon Blanc. Clos Quebrada de Macul 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intense aromas of green herbs, jalapeno, gooseberries and pineapple greet the nose. This has a lot of trapped CO2 so it comes off as a little sparkling at first, which is not at all attractive on a hot day with a well chilled bottle. The fruit here shows nice detail recalling the pineapple and lime from the nose with a touch of mango thrown in as well. Less herbaceous in the mouth than on the nose, the herbal components here are well covered right through the finish where the ad a flourish of complexity to the lingering tart fruit. Nice, fresh, and zesty. 87pts
