Chilean White Wine

Chile is probably the biggest success story in the world of wine in the last ten years. There's a vast array of inexpensive Chilean wine everywhere, but the quality varies enormously. It's vineyards stretch over seven hundred miles north to south in a series of lush valleys between the Andes and the Coastal Ranges. Just like California, and with a very similar climate, Chile's vineyards are more affected by their location east to west between two mountain ranges, rather than north to south. Whereas east facing slopes of the Coastal Ranges receive less rainfall and warmer temperatures, the best vineyards are sited on the west facing slopes of the Andes, which benefit from cool night time temperatures producing high levels of acidity and good concentration of fruit, ideal for sauvignon blanc.

It's difficult to find wines from Chile which are low in sulphites. Please take a look at our Argentinian Whites for some great quality, low sulphite wines including several superb Sauvignon Blancs.
 
 

Aresti Estates Trisquel Sauvignon Blanc 2015 75cl

91 Points Descorchados

This is the premium Sauvignon Blanc from Aresti and is beautiful.

Hand picked grapes from the Leyda Valley - one of Chile's finest vineyard areas for cool climate wines due to the combination of it's proximity to the ocean, the Maipo River, and the altitude of course. This all combines to allow slow ripening of the grapes with good acidity levels.

The grapes were cool fermented to retain freshness and flavour, in stainless steel. No oak was used at any stage.

The resulting wine has strong aromas and intense flavours of green fruit, with crisp acidity and a really long finish. Perfect with shellfish or to enjoy on it's own.

Aresti Estates Selection Reserva Chardonnay 2014 75cl

Hand harvested grapes from two of Aresti's vineyards, again cold fermented to retain freshness and flavour. This limited production wine was then aged in French oak for six months, producing a fruit driven wine, full bodied with noticeable oak and vanilla on the long finish . Great value. If you like an oaked Chardonnay this is a great wine at this price.
