Clean, clear, light greenish-yellow in colour, with a nose that presents the variety’s very characteristic aromas such as delicate fruity notes of lime, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. The fruit and herbal notes reappear on the crisp, vibrant palate. Moderate persistent, fresh, and pleasing on the finish, this is wine that is easy to drink for many occasions.

With prime vineyards in Casablanca, Maipo, Rapel and Bio-Bio and access to the newest and best clones in Chile (through Jose Guilisasti, brother of Emiliana’s General Manager Rafael who runs Chile’s foremost nursery) Emiliana is a very substantial and impressive organisation. Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. They have a total of 1,117 hectares under vine of which 750ha are IMO and Demeter certified organic. As South America’s largest organic producer, their spectacular vineyard and winery at Los Robles has the added benefit of being biodynamic and features the sensory delights of roaming Alpacas, dung heaps and dynamised biodynamic mixtures to treat the vineyards.

Sourced from vineyards in the Bío Bío Valley, approximately 500km south of Santiago. Its soils are clay loam with a characteristic reddish colour. The vineyards extend to the banks of this river that lends its name to the valley. Traditional, fresh, young and fruity Sauvignon Blanc that comes from the Chilean Central Valley, one of the best terroirs for the cultivation of high quality grapes. The harvest took place in the month of March with a minimum of 22º Brix to ensure a pleasing balance between the alcohol and acidity, which leads to a very fresh and lively wine. Upon arriving at the winery, the hand picked grapes underwent a 6-hour cold soak for greater extraction of aromas from the skins and better varietal expression. The must was then drained and pressed, and the clean must was fermented with selected yeasts under controlled conditions at 13º–15ºC. The new wine was then fined, stabilized, and bottled for distribution and sale in various international markets.

The wine’s vibrant acidity pairs very well with shellfish-based dishes such as carpaccio, ceviche, soups and chowders, etc., as well as delicate white fish, such as sole and hake. It also makes a fine aperitif with mild cheeses, fresh fruits, and nuts.
