In 1554, whilst struggling to remain heir to the Spanish throne, Philip II of Spain married Queen Mary I of England. In order to give him equal rank with the Queen, he was renamed Tierra del Rey, ‘King of Chile’ by this father and thus became Chile’s only King. The Central Valley is set in between the majestic Andes Mountains and the mighty Pacific Ocean, making it an ideal location for growing grapes. The mountains protect the wine region by creating dry, hot climatic conditions and the cold ocean breezes keep the vines cool. This combination produces full-flavored wines whilst maintaining that all-important acidity essential to make perfectly balanced wines.
Pale lemon in colour, this Chilean Sauvignon Blanc combines aromas of fresh grapefruit and lime, followed by luscious flavours of green gooseberry and ripe melon on the palate. Fresh acidity and a crisp finish.late. Medium-bodied and well-balanced with a rich, pleasing finish.
