120 Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshing, fruity, and balanced wine. The nose offers an enjoyable balance of citrus and tropical fruit, along with the herbal notes typical of this variety. The presence of 2% Semillon boosts the fruit sensation, lending the wine pleasant, persistent and balanced aromas and flavors.

Santa Rita was founded in 1880, by a distinguished entrepreneur of those times, Mr. Domingo Fernández Concha in the area of Alto Jahuel where the main installations of the winery are currently located. From the very beginning, he introduced fine French varieties, winemakers and the most advanced winemaking techniques. From the end of the XIX century until the mid 70´s, Santa Rita developed under the ownership of Mr. Vicente García - Huidobro, father of the famous Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro Fernández. In 1980, the Grupo Claro acquired the Santa Rita property, giving a strong impulse to the enterprise in all of its scope, introducing great technological improvements and wine elaboration techniques unknown in Chile at that time. At the end of the 80´s a great expansion period for Santa Rita starts, sustained by the great momentum experienced by its exports and the excellent reputation acquired by its products, which obtained important awards and worldwide recognition.

Pale straw in colour. This is a young wine.Very citrus bouquet with some peach. Distinctly off-dry and tart. Tickles the taste buds with its acidity. Lacks complexity.

Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - 88 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Light straw. White pepper, lemon, lime and pear on the nose, with herbal and mineral accents lending complexity. Light-bodied and racy, with brisk citrus flavors and a late jolt of lemon thyme. The finish is clean and focused, with a strong lime note lingering.

Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2011 - 90 points, International Wine Cellar/ Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of candied citrus peel, green apple and jasmine, with a spicy accent gaining with air. Bright and sharply focused but silky too, offering tangy lime and orange flavors. Closes with very good cling, focus and length, leaving spice and floral notes behind.

/ Light yellow. Smoky apple, lime and herbal aromas offer good complexity. The brisk citrus and orchard fruit flavors gain weight on the close, finishing with a jolt of succulent herbs.
