Viña Casas Patronales Sauvignon Blanc Valle del Maule 2010
In the Maule Valley, terroirs with a high percentage of clay determine the mineral character of our wines. The cold evening breezes from the Andes mountains caress our vineyards, causing extreme fluctuations in temperature. The resulting wines are intense in colour, full of fresh fruit, highly concentrated and with mature tannins, delivering a well-balanced palate.
Very aromatic, with asparagus, gooseberry, and gravel dominating the nose. The wine is nicely acidic, with grapefruit definitely making an appearance, especially from mid-palate to the finish. I find that this wine shows a bit better warmer, rather than too chilled.
Typical of a Chilean Sauv Blanc. Has a slight apple front with a hint of peaches and finishes heavy on citrus. Good wine for the price.
