CASA MARIN SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016
The Cipreses Sauvignon Blanc is definitely an Estate flagship. 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.
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.
A small amount, 7%, is matured in old french oak barrels to add a layer of complexity to the wine, which is a must try for any Sauvginon Blanc enthusiast.
