SAUVIGNON BLANC GRAND RESERVe
94 Pts., Best Chilean White and Best Chilean Sauvignon Blanc (2009, Descorchados Chilean Wine Guide 2012)
In the high Cachapoal, almost 3300 ft above sea level with cold climate conditions, natural constant ventilation, provides a refreshed environment to the Santa Cruz de Coya estate. These natural weather conditions allow slow maturity that favors the development of the vine, resulting in exceptional wine grapes, delivering a unique fruit that reflects both, the terroir and ecosystem in which it is located.
Powerful structure highlighted by a stony acidity softened by honeyed hints. “A total madness” that got Gold Medal at Decanter 2012. 1600 bottles aged for 18 months in three different barrels, one of them first-use.
