‘El Viejo del Valle’ or ‘The Old Man of the Valley’ celebrates the 1950s Chilean street graffiti. This range is an exciting find from the depths of Chile.

Sauvignon Gris tends to mature very early and has a high sugar level. The grapes are a beautiful dusky pink/apricot colour and they have thick skins. Sourced from a very small plot in the Casablanca Valley, these low yielding vines were first planted when cuttings were brought over to Chile by European settlers. A single varietal Sauvignon Gris wine. The grapes were crushed and gently pressed to achieve fresh, clear, elegant juice. This was then fermented slowly at cool temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters. No oak was used on this wine.

The only Sauvignon Gris in our list – it's an aromatic cousin of Sauvignon Blanc - think somewhere between Chile and New Zealand. A fresh aroma of waxy lemons, lime and grapefruit with a hint of frangapani. Fresh and clean on the palate with invigorating acidity.

This has bags of character and personality, it really impresses in the glass with food. Try it with a variety of dishes such as scallops with mushrooms and white wine sauce, BBQ garlic prawns or salmon, grilled oysters, and poached white fish with summer salads containing parsley, pepper or lemon.
