Once again, the prestigious magazine Wine Enthusiast praises Santa Carolina, this time by choosing Carolina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2018 as one of the Top 100 Best Buys of 2019.
According to Wine Enthusiast, “the Top 100 Best Buys list is a ranking of the most attainable, buzzworthy, well-priced and simply delicious pours available,” selected from over 1.300 bottles from 17 countries.
The grapes for our Carolina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2018 are sourced from the Leyda valley, where they receive the influence of the Pacific Ocean in the form of morning fogs and cool breezes. This allows the grapes–particularly the white varieties–to develop slowly and undergo a slow ripening process, delivering expressive and balanced wines.
This pale yellow Sauvignon Blanc is expressive in the nose, with notes of pink grapefruit and subtle undertones of herbs and stones. The palate is juicy and fresh and exhibits nice balance between citrus fruit, peach, and passion fruit, as well as an intense mineral character. Its texture offers a pleasant creaminess, making it an excellent pairing wine.
