Food Pairings for Valdivieso Sauvignon Blanc
Laid back New Zealander Brett Jackson is very much settled in Chile - although he hasn't lost his lifelong affection for the All Blacks - and much of Valdivieso's success in recent years has been down to his efforts. Based in Lontue, the company has a wealth of vineyards and the quality of the terroir is shown by the Single Vineyard wines. The whole range encapsulates everything that Chile excels at: rich, vibrant flavours and smooth, glossy textures - and the wines deserve the multitude of gongs they have picked up in recent years.The Valdivieso classic Sauvignon Blanc has a lifted fragrant nose, a tropical fruit salad, passionfruit with underlying freshly-cut grass aromas, which is typical of the variety. On the palate, it is crisp and clean, with excellent fruit weight. It is fresh and vibrant with a soft finish.
