Santa Rita Merlot Reserva Valle del Maipo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 120 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. Its fruity aroma of citrus blossoms and peaches is well balanced by delicate herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics enhanced by a pleasant acidity intensify the wine’s freshness and smooth lingering on the palate.

Not normally a fan of many whites, but this had such complexity. It is difficult to describe, but is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I've had since the Franciscan, which this reminds me of, but has less fruit and more green flavors, grass, green onion... thrilled to have shelled out only $12.49 at the Ideal grocery down the street.

Excellent balance, clean finish, very sharp. Perfect with rich dishes such as sea scallop saute over risotto Milanese.

A great quality price ratio for this refreshing White wine. Good with fish and chicken or as an aperitif.

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Pale yellow. Potent lime and white peach aromas are complicated by jasmine and dusty minerals. Racy deeply concentrated citrus and melon flavors offer excellent palate coverage and tangy grip finishing clean and long. Pretty impressive.` (Mar/Apr '08) 90 points Wine Spectator: `Bright and pure with lots of mache sweet pea chive flower and mineral flavors backed by a bright tangy finish. This has solid length and richness.` (06/08) 90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Floresta from the cool-climate Leyda Valley is a first class effort with an expressive bouquet of minerals fresh herbs grapefruit and gooseberry. Round and complex the wine has exceptional depth and concentration. Should be consumed over the next 1-2 years. Santa Rita produces a wide range of wines in all price categories. A significant number offer excellent value and the top wines are Chilean icons.` (10/08)

Bursting with aromas of luscious tropical fruit fresh green apples and a zesty note of orange peel. Silky fruity and refreshing. Medium-bodied and round.



Tasting Notes:

Intense ruby red. Fresh black fruits and spicy notes with an elegant rich oak. Big and flavoursome, concentrated and persistent, elegant and deep.

The 120 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. Its fruity aroma of citrus blossoms and peaches is well balanced by delicate herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics enhanced by a pleasant acidity intensify the wine’s freshness and smooth lingering on the palate.
