Coming from the privileged Maule valley, this pale-yellow green Sauvignon
Blanc reflects the coastal origins. The strong Pacific Ocean influence and
red clayish soils concur to foster this refreshing, crisp, pale-yellow
green wine. In nose, fresh aromas of white flowers and fine citric notes of
grapefruit combine with green apples and white peaches. In the mouth it is
crisp and delicate with a pleasant minerality. This is perfect as an
aperitif or paired with citric seafood dishes like ceviche.
