Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc Reserva La Gloria 2013

Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc Reserva La Gloria 2013

Sku: 017649

When Veramonte first introduced its Sauvignon Blanc in the 1990s, restaurants were progressive if only one Sauvignon Blanc was offered by the glass. Today, Sauvignon Blanc is a favorite white wine to pair with salads, lighter meals, sushi and all kinds of Asian foods. Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is noted for its racy and vibrant style. Veramonte’s Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are managed carefully to regulate sunlight as fruit ripens, preserving freshness and varietal aromatics. Carefully controlled fermentations also maintain the wine’s vibrant fruit flavors and aromas. Fermented entirely in stainless steel, never oak, this wine delivers fresh, lively fruit flavors with balanced acidity.

Tasting notes
Good clarity withlight straw color
Fresh lemon-lime fruit, intense peach, citrus, and herbs mingle with floral accents
Medium-bodied with tropical and citrus fruit flavors of white grapefruit and lime with a long crisp finish and some minerality

Visibly clean and clear, on the nose vaguely pineapple, honeydew melon with citrus lime, and refreshing flavors especially banana, some spice, verdant herbs and a creamy factor.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Jun 2014)
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc comes from different vineyards in the cool Casablanca valley from an extremely cold vintage, which has its own character. Looking more like a Loire in texture, but with the ripeness and volume of the New World, it is clean and fresh, zesty, easy to drink, with notes of citric fruit and peach that makes you salivate and have the next sip, thanks to its salinity and high acidity. Great for seafood and superb value. Drink now-2017.

Wine maker notes
Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in the estate vineyards across a total of 47 vineyard blocks. Warm days and cool nights contribute to long, even ripening. Sauvignon Blanc vines are trellised with an interior tunnel to increase airflow so that the grapes do not overheat and retain freshness, aromatics and flavor. The wine is fermented in stainless steel.
