Medalla Real Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2018 named Best Buy in Wine & Spirits31 de July de 2019
July, 2019.- The August edition of top US wine magazine Wine & Spirits, selected Santa Rita Medalla Real Sauvignon Blanc 2018 as Best Buy, including it in its Chile Costa Focus of the tasting panel. The white wine from Leyda Valley achieved 91 points, one of the exceptional wines of the issue.
The full tasting note will be published in the magazine’s August 2019 edition, where the critic for Chile Joshua Greene reviewed “The scent of nori and the refreshing feel of sea spray place this wine on Chile’s far coast. That coolness and clarity is infused with supple blanched-almond and peach flavors, and sharper notes of bell pepper and bitter florals. It’s a wine for carnitas tacos with cilantro and lime”.
Medalla Real Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is sourced from the Leyda Valley, where the vines are planted over granitic soils and receive the strong influence of the Pacific Ocean. The wine is brilliant greenish-yellow in color. The nose has intense great fruit expression of grapefruit, lime and citrus notes combined with the classic gooseberry and the distinctly mineral finish that is characteristic of the Leyda Valley. Elegant and compact, this is a tremendously balanced wine with vibrant acidity that spreads over the palate as it develops its fruity components and delivers its long fruit-driven finish.
