Intro to Adobe Organic Reserva Sauvignon Blanc –
Adobe Organic Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is from the Casablanca Valley in Chile & is aromatic & deliciously fruity with a tangy leafy gooseberry flavour.
Full tasting note and wine making –
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 and make this Adobe Organic Reserve Sauvignon Blanc a great example of modern Chilean white wine making. 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 2016 harvest was hand-picked at dawn in the first week of March and vinification took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks without any oak influence.
The producer –
The Adobe range of wines are made by Emiliana which is one of the world’s most important producers of organic and biodynamic wines and the largest in South America. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine in the valleys of Casablanca, Maipo, Colchagua, and Cachapoal of which 923ha are IMO certified organic and the remaining 77 in conversion. Their spectacular biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from all over the world. General Manager José Guilisasti and winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza were key to establishing this project to convert a large commercial winery into a commercially viable organic one. These innovative wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.
Drink with –
The citrus flavours of this Sauvignon Blanc work well with all types of sushi and Mediterranean flavours such as goats cheese salad or smoked ham.
