Santa Rita Sauvignon Blanc 120 2012

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.

/ “Santa Rita’s Chardonnays get better and better. The “120” is complex in character, full bodied, and crisp on the finish, with moderate depth and aromas/flavors reminiscent of pear, lemon pee, roasted nut, sweet corn, and pineapple. Great Value.”

120 Chardonnay 2007 - 85 Points & Best Value, Wine Spectator/ A plump Chilean white, with notes of pear and apple backed by modest toast on the medium-weight finish.

120 Chardonnay 2008 - 85 Points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/ Despite a persistent front-to-back sweetness, this is a nice little Chardonnay for those fastened to the grape. It starts with ripe pineapple and apple aromas, and next you get tropical fruit, citrus and banana flavors. Medium in size and good for what it strives to be.

120 Chardonnay 2008 - Sante/ Candied lemon on the nose and palate which segues into tropical fruit notes of pineapple and ripe tangerine. Clean and offering a broad, sweet fruit palate which is oak-free.

120 Chardonnay 2010 - Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/ Melon, pear and apple aromas are standard and sweet. The palate is soft, maybe a bit mushy, with banana, pear and tropical fruit flavors. Finishes easy and flat, with lasting tropical sweetness.

Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2012 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a perfectly good, honest Chilean SB with snappy, pungent aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit and lime. The mouth is racy as it should be, with textbook lime, grapefruit, nettle and pithy flavors...
