Winemaker 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

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Light yellow. Intensely perfumed bouquet of white grapefruit, jalape n o, mint and lemon thyme. Dry, racy, focused citrus and herb flavors offer a light touch but pick up sweeter fruit in the middle palate. This very dry wine verges on austere and shows a distinctly fat-free character.
