Tasting Notes:

They have changed the source for the grapes of the 2017 Cordillera Sauvignon Blanc, which is now Osorno in the south, a wetter and cooler zone, where the wines achieved 12% alcohol. They were looking for fresher wines with less pungent herbal aromas that are common in the north in Elqui where the wine was from in previous years. It has citrus notes with good freshness and a vibrant palate. It's refreshing and easy to drink, quite pleasant.

Tasting Notes:

Generous and aromatic sauvignon blanc with plenty of gooseberries and some both fresh and candied citrus fruit. Bold palate with some tannins and a slightly tart, dry finish. Screw cap.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Miguel Torres Chile is a Chilean winery that was founded in Curicó, in 1979, by the Spanish family company Miguel Torres. In its 570-acre (2.3 km2), the Viña Santa Digna vineyard cultivates the varieties Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay (for their white wines) and Cabernet sauvignon (for their red and rosé wines). To a lesser extent they also cultivate Pinot noir, which contributes to the cuvee of a brut sparkling wine. As well as the wines that they sell under the Santa Digna brand, the conditions of the Chilean vineyard have also allowed for the selection of a number of single estates or terroirs, such as Manso de Velasco, which produces its Cabernet sauvignon from vines that are over a hundred years old and have never been grafted. All of the wines undergo a fermentation process in stainless steel tanks, with their temperature carefully controlled, and furthermore, in the case of some wines, in the aging cellar in barrels made of American and Nevers French oak. Miguel Torres Chile have 160 acres (65 ha) hectares of their own vineyards in the region of Curicó, plus another 530 acres (215 ha) that are leased out.
