Vc Family Estates Calafate Sauvignon Blanc Reserva Patagonia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The VC Family Estates group is part of the Corpora group which extends over Chile and Argentina, in the Patagonia region. Although Argentinian Patagonia is a fairly young wine-producting region due to its cooler climate and lower latitude, it is warmed by "La Zonda", a warm wind, and it boasts the region of Rio Negro in its northern portion, the Neuquen Valley. This difference in climate and landscape makes for very interesting new wines. This Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Bodega Universo Austral in the Neuquen Valley, and it is a strong yellow colour with green reflections. On the nose there is a natural and fruity character, with notes of pink grapefruit and green apple, which opens up more fully on the palate, with citrus notes which strength the refreshing flavours.
