External Reviews for Santa Rita Sauvignon Blanc 120
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.
Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - International Wine Cellar/ Bright straw. Musky citrus pith and herbal aromas, with a subtle floral quality gaining strength with air. Pliant orange and pear flavors become drier with air, picking up dusty mineral and dried herb qualities. The orange note lingers on the broad, persistent finish.
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.
Bargain Buzz/ Very grassy and citrusy on the nose; deliciously fruity, crisp and refreshing with stone fruit and mineral undercurrents. For lovers of very grassy, New Zealand style.
A Chile Reception/ Clear gold in appearance, this wine displayed intense New World Sauvignon Blanc characteristics of green grass, lemon-citrus and gooseberry aromas. Flavors were refreshing green apple and rich pear, with finishing flavors of delicate citrus and balanced spice. Pair this with seared sea scallops or a fried shrimp po'boy.
Medall Real Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - 88 Points & Top Value, Wine Spectator/ This shows a grapefruit, lemon verbena and floral profile, with a creamy note framing the finish.
Top 5 Chilean Value Brands of the Year/ What: Whites and reds alike are great here – not surprising given the talent of winemakers Cecilia Torres and Andres Ilabaca, and some of the best vineyards in Chile’s Central Valley. Standout: Although Santa Rita is one of the most reliable sources of cabernet in Chile, for the last five years it’s been making very good sauvignons too, like the fresh, crisp ’05 Reserva from Casablanca. Where: Based in Maipo, the winery grows and purchases grapes throughout Chile’s wine regions. When: Match the Reserva Sauvignon with a ceviche.
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.
