Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Viña Santa Rita:

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.

/ 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 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.

Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - 90 Points, Wine Review Online/ This is a very fine rendition of Sauvignon Blanc from Chile's Leyda Valley, which is slowly gaining note as a world class source of Sauvignon. Although it shows a cool climate signature in the forms of grassy, herbal aromas and zesty citrus fruit, it is actually a rather complex wine with medium body and some ripe melon fruit notes to go with the citrus flavors. This is light and fresh enough to pair beautifully with raw oysters while not overpowering them, but also rich enough to hold its own with most fish dishes or lighter preparations of chicken.

/ 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.

Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2010 - 87 points, Wine Advocate/ Santa Rita’s 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva was fermented and raised in stainless steel. Aromas of herbs, baking spices, spring flowers, and citrus lead to a medium-bodied, balanced, savory Sauvignon that is a very good value meant for drinking over the next 12-18 months.

120 Sauvignon Blanc 2007 - 87 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Reflective of a good vintage for Saugignon Blanc, this delicious wine features pretty flower blossom and citrus aromas backed by fresh apple, orange and lime flavors. It's clean, crisp and balanced across the palate. Perfect for drinking upon purchase.
