Description

In 1979 the Torres family purchased 100 hectares of vineyard in Maquehua, San Francisco Norte and Cordillera, together with a winery in the Curicó Valley. Miguel Torres brought with him his family’s long tradition of wine-making and over 140 years of company history. The Chilean Central Valley has an ideal climate for top-quality viticulture. This Phylloxera-free region is dominated by the presence of the Andes, their peaks crowned with permanent snow. The difference in temperatures between day and night provides the optimum conditions for the development of the grapes and increases their ability to retain their finest aromas. Cordillera Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Osorno Valley at the northern end of Chilean Patagonia between the Bueno River and the Pacific Ocean. It is home to an extraordinary terraced vineyard with volcanic soils. Carved into the northern foothills of the Cordillera de la Costa,

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant, pale yellow color with a greenish hue. The nose reveals intense citrus aromas with notes of yellow pepper and ají chili pepper that are typical for the region’s Sauvignon Blanc. The palate displays notable acidity, resulting in a particularly fresh wine with a mineral streak. Long and balanced on the finish, with a lingering sensation of fruit.
