Vina Leyda Sauvignon Blanc Classic Reserve 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pungent and spicy on the nose with subtle layers of green chile, pineapple and tarragon aromas. Bright and direct, this turns slightly rich on the mid-palate with plenty of material and perhaps a little sugar buffering the significant acidity. The backend sees the acidity popping out to the detriment of the modest fruit which mostly washes away on the zesty, moderately long finish. This is nicely aromatic but lacks some depth of flavor. 82pts

A nice middle ground for people looking for a Sauvignon Blanc that is between a Marlborough and Sonoma. This has aromas of stonefruit and light guava. This wine is simply refreshing, flavors of tropical fruits that are washed down with a brisk, mouth-watering acidity that begs you to chug this wine. I kid, however this wine could be a great "porch-pounder" during the hot summer months. This wine's citrus filled finish will not let you down. Not as sweet and tropical as NZ SB nor is it too grassy and peppery like a CA SB. Cheers.

The citrus is all there in the nose and rolls into the midpalate with an almost Sweet Tart tang. Kinda pulls up a bit on the finish. Feels like it's going to other burst with puckermouth flavor or go over-grassy but does neither. Nice, lemon-y nose. Way better after an hour of opening up.

Intense and fruity on the nose. Ripe citrus aromas of grapefruit and gooseberriescombined with a subtle grassy note. Bright acidity and freshness, sweet citrusfruit, subtle notes of sweet green chilli peppers and a mineral character. Mediumbody and a lingering grapefruit aftertaste.
