Viña Santa Rita 120 Reserva Especial Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Valle Central, Chile

My Rating 81 Points.

Price $7.

Light straw in color with a golden glow.

Strong nose of lemons, citrus, vegetables, barnyard, green apples, grapefruits, bitter herbs, spices and black pepper.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity and crisp.

Bitter on the attack and dry on the palate with green apples, grapefruits, earth, citrus, lemons, green vegetables, bitter herbs and white pepper.

Short finish with bitter almonds.

This is a very herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. Earthy and crisp. Not fully balanced with mild complexity.

A nice food wine, but needs to be very chilled.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
