Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc 2018 (500ml)
Very bright pale greenish yellow color. Honeydew, lime and lychee-scented nose that also reveals hints of wild asparagus and fresh lemon verbena. On the palate, this extroverted wine is lively, fresh, and gentle. The quintessential Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is best enjoyed in its youth, within 2-3 years after bottling.
Los Vascos’ Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes purchased on long term contracts with growers in the Casablanca Valley. The vintages all offer very pure fruit and a lively, refreshing palate.
This season started with a mild winter, no risk of frost in September and October and very few below 0ºC events. Mornings were remarkably humid in spring and summer, a signature characteristic of the Casablanca valley due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean (18 km as the crow flies). It should be noted that these conditions led to high phytosanitary pressure ; however, strict control allowed us to harvest very healthy fruit. Since this season was slightly cooler compared to last year, evolution and sugar accumulation were slower. Consequently, wines are lower in alcohol content but boast a fresher character, delicious acidity, and perfect balance.
