2015 Kiyapura Sauvignon Blanc
This Kiyapura product is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, and is a classic example of what can be done with the variety in Central Chile, a region becoming renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are exposed to wonderful sun and an almost greenhouse-like regularity of dry, hot days and dry, cool nights throughout the growing season--near perfect ripening conditions. The result is a clean, citrusy, lean and fresh wine. The nose is full of grapefruit and green apple followed by zesty flavors of green fruits, lime, and floral notes and a long, crisp finish. Outstanding as an aperitif or a cocktail wine, it is also ideal with salads using arugula, fennel, or roasted bell peppers, and is a refreshing companion for richer white meats like pork and lobster.
