The Details

In a Nutshell

Trophy winning (again) and now Fairtrade Sauvignon Blanc from Casablanca.

Tasting Notes

Fresh lime zest and green pepper aromas on the nose are carried through to the mineral palate which is alive with crunchy fruit, zest and a long, long zippy finish.

Production Notes

Casablanca Valley is hugely influenced by its proximity to the cool breezes which blow in of the chilly Pacific Ocean. The vineyard soils are alluvial in origin, with sandy textures, high permeability, whose shallow depth restricts yield. These cooler temperatures and poor soils, in consequence, give great character in both flavour and aroma, especially for aromatic white varieties like Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2012 harvest was hand-picked at dawn in the first week of March. The vinification process took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.

Producer - Emiliana

With prime vineyards in Casablanca, Maipo, Rapel and Bio-Bio and access to the newest and best clones in Chile (through Jose Guilisasti, brother of Emiliana’s General Manager Rafael who runs Chile’s foremost nursery) Emiliana is a very substantial and impressive organisation. Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine of which 923ha are IMO and Demeter certified organic. As South America’s largest organic producer, their spectacular vineyard and winery at Los Robles has the added benefit of being biodynamic and features the sensory delights of roaming Alpacas, dung heaps and dynamised biodynamic mixtures to treat the vineyards

Trophy 'House white wine of the year' & Gold Medal

Sommelier Wine Awards 2012

A Gold medal winning variety show of clear, crisp fruit flavours here. Showing plenty of New World zest – think pineapples and greengage – alongside stone fruit and gooseberry, this has both balance and a long clean, aromatic finish.

Good supporting acidity and varietally correct – leaves you wanting more.

A well-made, vibrant style. A real treat!
