Savour This Sauvignon Blanc

The Sauvignon Blanc grape has found the ideal location to bring out its best characteristics along the coast of Chile. The San Antonio Valley appellation, completely located within the Matetic estate, is located only 13 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean where the Humboldt Current delivers cool sea breezes. We could really feel this while standing in the property during a recent visit. This dry, cool climate, combined with the pure uninterrupted sunlight of the southern hemisphere make it the perfect spot to grow grapes at a slower pace and make characterful wines. While the label may seem like a pre-schooler’s rendition of a horse, it is actually a copy of an ancient cave drawing discovered on their property. Most likely, this was done by an aboriginal artist. The Corralillo brand name is taken from a still standing, non-operational century-old wine cellar and winery also on the property.

The intense aroma, full of tropical and citrus fruits, gently slides along mineral and herbal notes. It is lively and zesty to taste with a textured, long-lasting finish.

Coming from close to the ocean, seafood would obviously be the best companion for this wine. Ceviche, tuna carpaccio, oysters and scallops head the list. Or sushi, as another alternative.
