One of my favorite varietals from the country is the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Cipreses Vineyard, a vineyard-designated bottling that has the grape character in a style closer to Sancerre than other regions in the world. It's pungent, sharp, quite complete, fresh and linear, with good concentration and balance. It should evolve nicely in bottle. Bravo! 25,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2017.
"Our Cipreses Sauvignon Blanc is definitely the flagship in our portfolio. 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." - Winery
