Concho y Toro, Colchagua Valley Serie Riberas Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2014, Colchagua Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: Green pepper pops out of this Chilean sauvignon blanc and is the dominant aroma on the nose.
The wine is medium-plus acidity with intense flavors of pear and white grape.
A chalky tartness begins mid palate and continues through to the finish.
Bottle Note: From cooler vineyards near riverbanks in Chile, Concha Y Tor carefully selects its grapes to make the highest quality wines with and emphasis on freshness. Serie Riberas, Gran Reserva. Lying close to the mouth of the Rapel Rive, and perched 120 meters above the gorge, our sauvignon blanc vineyards deliver a juicy, mouth filling, lime-forward and clean mineral wine.
