Sauvignon Blanc is one of Chile’s star whites – and it’s a real specialty at Luis Felipe Edwards (named Chilean Producer of the Year twice in a row at the International Wine & Spirit Competition and New World Producer of the Year at the 2016 Sommelier Wine Awards). Their Reserve-level Sauvignon Blanc scooped three international gold medals and two 90-plus point scores from Guía Peñín.Which means you’re in for a real treat here: Riversong is an exciting exclusive they make just for us.
Head winemaker, Nicolas Bizzarri, sourced the grapes from several top-notch sites across the cool (and gorgeous) Maule Valley, where vibrant sunshine and chilly evenings yield grapes with incredible aromatic intensity and flavor complexity.
This is a serious value delivering mega refreshment. Look for zesty citrus and cut grass aromas mingling on a palate filled with ripe mango and lychee characters. Makes for a lip-smacking aperitif, seafood partner, or cheese plate accompaniment.
Insider tip? No Sauvignon Blanc should ignore the gems coming out of Chile.
