Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc comes from different vineyards in the cool Casablanca valley from an extremely cold vintage, which has its own character. Looking more like a Loire in texture, but with the ripeness and volume of the New World, it is clean and fresh, zesty, easy to drink, with notes of citric fruit and peach that makes you salivate and have the next sip, thanks to its salinity and high acidity. Great for seafood and superb value. Drink now-2017. (Jun 2014)
When Veramonte first introduced its Sauvignon Blanc in the 1990s, restaurants were progressive if only one Sauvignon Blanc was offered by the glass. Today, Sauvignon Blanc is a favorite white wine to pair with salads, lighter meals, sushi and all kinds of Asian foods. Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is noted for its racy and vibrant style.
Veramonte’s Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are managed carefully to regulate sunlight as fruit ripens, preserving freshness and varietal aromatics. Carefully controlled fermentations also maintain the wine’s vibrant fruit flavors and aromas. Fermented entirely in stainless steel, never oak, this wine delivers fresh, lively fruit flavors with balanced acidity.
|Opening in 1998, Veramonte is a striking, modern facility designed by one of Chile’s leading architects, Jorge Swinburn. It houses the latest technology in gravity-based fermentors, ultra-modern stainless steel tanks and high efficiency bottling lines. Built for small-lot wine production, the facility ensures individual vineyard blocks can be fermented and aged separately prior to final blending – allowing winemaking to create authentic, vineyard expressive wines.
Veramonte was founded as a vineyard-based winery whose mission is to produce high quality wines that accurately, authentically express varietal characteristics via Chile’s unique terroirs -- the combined environment of soil, topography, climate and people. Our commitment to nurturing the ties of every wine to its soil or ”sense of place” reflects a dedication to produce terroir expressive wines.
