    Winemaker's Notes:

    Penalolen's Sauvignon Blanc comes from Chile's prestigious cool climate appellation, the Casablanca Valley. With this wine, Penalolen demonstrates how impressive Sauvignon Blanc can be when grown in the right place and guided by a talented winemaker. The use of pure, ripe fruit gives this wine a powerfully rich and complex flavor free from oak or residual sugar. The aromas of mandarin orange and fresh cut flowers, combined with good acidity, make this Sauvignon Blanc a classic partner for food.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Clear, breezey tangerine and grapefruit aromas roll out the red carpet on this crisp, citrusy SB that pours on the green fruit and scallion flavors. The palate is both round and crisp, and the finish is long and juicy. For fresh, citrusy, varietally correct Sauvignon Blanc, it’s hard to do better.

    Bright straw. Sharply focused lime zest and herb aromas are complemented by suggestions of dried fig and chamomile. Nervy and precise, showing tangy orange and quince flavors and an herbal quality on the back half. Exhibits a hint of honey on the finish, which leaves bitter citrus pith and tarragon notes behind. I like this wine's balance.
