Food Pairings for Viña Santa Rita Sauvignon Blanc Valle Del Maule 120
First Taste - Poured through an aerator, I was immediately confused by the bouquet. Overwhelming musty, basement smell, thought "corked" immediately. But then it opened up more and some oak rolled out with some other hints, including vanilla that barely came out. Color - Deep blackberry color. Taste, typical Cab Sav yet lacking the tannins. Not silky tannins but very light. I thought it was quite balanced and slightly acidic. Tart. I am going to give this one a day two try, but not a fan at first taste. WOW. After recorking and resting til the next time this wine really came into its own. The bouquet was alive and fruity, Black Currants jumped out onto the palette and the tannins were close to perfect. After reading other reviews of products of this vineyard I feel better now, this is just a wine you do not want to open and pour.

Rating 87 point. Very firm structure and good nose. This wine needs more time to develop. Keep and enjoy in 3 years. Tasted again in 2013 and now a rating of 90. Wine has developed and is much more even in taste with some tar like aromas and elegant nose. A joy to drink now.
Very fruit forward, almost a little jammy, New World style Cabernet Sauvignon. I tasted black currant and maybe some blackberry in the mix.
A Chilean Cab with great bones. Rich, ripe, dark fruit & flowers on the nose, a lovingly-balanced array of green pepper, cedar, and juicy black cherry in the mouth.
Not normally a fan of many whites, but this had such complexity. It is difficult to describe, but is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I've had since the Franciscan, which this reminds me of, but has less fruit and more green flavors, grass, green onion... thrilled to have shelled out only $12.49 at the Ideal grocery down the street.
External Reviews for Viña Santa Rita Sauvignon Blanc Valle Del Maule 120
Dark fruits, baking spices, and soft tannins make this the perfect wine for cold-weather comfort food. This is ready to drink tonight, and won't disappoint your guests.
Bursting with aromas of luscious tropical fruit fresh green apples and a zesty note of orange peel. Silky fruity and refreshing. Medium-bodied and round.
Bright ruby. Attractive aromas of cherry, raspberry, cola and black pepper. Sweet, supple and round, with good intensity to the straightforward dark fruit flavors. In no way complex but very easy to drink and avoiding the greenness of so many inexpensive (and expensive!) merlots. Finishes with lingering sweetness and an echo of pepper.
90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Pale yellow. Potent lime and white peach aromas are complicated by jasmine and dusty minerals. Racy deeply concentrated citrus and melon flavors offer excellent palate coverage and tangy grip finishing clean and long. Pretty impressive.` (Mar/Apr '08) 90 points Wine Spectator: `Bright and pure with lots of mache sweet pea chive flower and mineral flavors backed by a bright tangy finish. This has solid length and richness.` (06/08) 90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Floresta from the cool-climate Leyda Valley is a first class effort with an expressive bouquet of minerals fresh herbs grapefruit and gooseberry. Round and complex the wine has exceptional depth and concentration. Should be consumed over the next 1-2 years. Santa Rita produces a wide range of wines in all price categories. A significant number offer excellent value and the top wines are Chilean icons.` (10/08)
The 120 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. Its fruity aroma of citrus blossoms and peaches is well balanced by delicate herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics enhanced by a pleasant acidity intensify the wine’s freshness and smooth lingering on the palate.
Intense ruby red. Fresh black fruits and spicy notes with an elegant rich oak. Big and flavoursome, concentrated and persistent, elegant and deep.
