With its numerous awards, including two-time winner for Best Sauvignon Blanc in the World (Concours Mondial du Sauvignon 2010 and Decanter World Wine Awards 2010), this wine is considered Chile’s best Sauvignon Blanc and among the best Sauvignon Blancs in the world. This wine shows lots of character as it represents the strong influence that Lo Abarca has on its flavours. As such, this influence overrides the varietal character of the original grapes with depth, salinity and the blend of roundness and sharp natural acidity, all of these so unique to this wine. The grapes originate in granite and limestone soil slopes, exposed to the cool wind of the Humboldt Current. Often described as an extremely seductive wine, a mix of stone fruit cocktail, green citrus aromas, wet stones and mineral hints that add an exotic feel. On the palate it is saline, crisp, and clean, resulting in a unique finesse. This wine has been crafted with lots of passion, without missing any detail during its development, all of which mark the difference.
Delicious to enjoy on its own during a warm summer day or paired with fresh salads, goat cheese, and all kinds of seafood.
Third Party Reviews
2019 seems like a brilliant vintage for the whites from Casa Marin, and the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Cipreses Vineyard could very well be the finest vintage for this single-vineyard bottling, which is among the finest Sauvignon Blancs from the country year in year out. The wine is intensely varietal with notes of freshly cut grass intermixed with saline notions and a citrus touch. The palate is textured and austere, with a dry mouthfeel, effervescent freshness and a long, sapid and lingering finish. Score 94, eRobertParker.com, March 2020
