Familia Garces Silva, Boya Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Leyda Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A Chilean sauvignon blanc that combines ripe fruit and a subtle herbaceous character that is the grape’s signature, cool-climate expression.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of pineapple, quince, grass, starfruit, pear and lemon-citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sauvignon blanc has medium-plus-intensity, tropical-fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The midpalate benefits from complexity unlike many straightforward, overripe sauvignon blancs on the market.
Enjoy old world sensibility from the new world.
