Tasting Notes:

The 2018 Cordillera Sauvignon Blanc is from the wetter and cooler zone in the south called Osorno, where vintages tend to be very different from central Chile, with soils that combine volcanic soils with clay and slate mother rock . In fact, 2018 was slightly warmer and allowed for a perfect ripening of the grapes, achieving 12% alcohol while keeping a pH of 3.0. Sourced from vines planted in 2010 in La Unión, the grapes were destemmed and pressed, then the juice fermented in stainless steel where the wine was kept with the lees until bottling. The zone has great natural freshness, and the wines have more acidity and freshness with an herbal and citrus character that is very different from the wines from the north and central vineyards. All of this is coupled with a nicely textured palate that gives a very different mouthfeel. This is amazing and a great value too. The vineyard has two hectares and produced 6,200 bottles that were filled in September 2019.

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.
