Los Caminos Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Colchagua Valley, Chile
Grape variety, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, unoaked.
From the vineyards of Lake Rapel in Colchagua Valley where Sauvignon Blanc benefits from the cool, maritime climate and long ripening season. This is a vibrant aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with a floral bouquet of nettle, grass and grapefruit balanced by citrus, gooseberry, passionfruit and pleasant acidity.
This light bodied, crisp, dry wine is great served as an aperitif or alongside salads, seafood, pasta with wild mushrooms or Thai stir fry dishes.
The Viña La Playa estate (owners of Los Caminos) occupies some of Colchagua Valley`s most desirable acreage benefitting from its own unique micro-climate due to the Tinguirrica and Limarí rivers which run through the vineyards. Comprising 600 acres and a $10 million state of the art winery, this excellent producer is owned by the Sutil family who make superb modern fruit driven wines from grapes sourced entirely from the estate. Exciting new vineyard development in the coastal Limari Valley, north of Santiago, is starting to produce some outstanding cool climate varietals. Viña La Playa is passionate about creating high quality, fruit-driven wines whilst remaining committed to the environment.
