External Reviews for Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc
/ Another great Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc to look for is the citrusy 2005 Santa Rita Reserva.
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.
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ Light straw; aromas of minerals, passion fruit, and citrus; crisp, ripe, savory flavors.
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2010 - 90 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Medalla Real was sourced from Leyda fruit, a region establishing a big reputation for this varietal and it shows. A splendid bouquet of fresh cut grass, jasmine, baking spices, and grapefruit set the stage for a medium-bodied, ripe, concentrated, spicy Sauvignon with excellent balance and length.
Wine Finds/ Grapefruit and tangerine peel aroma, bracing acidity and lush fruit flavors of white grapefruit and passion fruit.
A few different ways to give thanks/ This wine is fermented at low temperatures and then allowed to settle on its lees (yeast and other natural sediment) before the sediment is removed. This process develops great concentration of fruit flavors and key acidity levels. All this leads to a classic nose of juicy grapefruit, fragrant orange blossoms and honeysuckle. These scents carry over onto the palate where they are beautifully integrated with ripe apricots on a dry, crisp (thanks to the acidity) finish. If you're having traditional oyster stuffing, this is a match made in...Chile.
