Chile’s high-altitude Elqui Valley is like nowhere else on earth. Bathed in blinding sunlight, the region produces grapes of remarkable concentration and purity. Prepare to be dazzled by citrus-charged Sauvignon Blanc of unparalleled intensity.
For dazzlingly fresh, thrilling Sauvignon, Elqui Valley is a top spot. It’s an extraordinary region in the north of Chile next to the Atacama desert. Thanks to snowmelt from the Andes and the wonders of irrigation, green and flourishing vineyards stand out in contrast to their lunar-like surroundings. Alta Tierra is from Viña Falernia, owned by cousins Aldo Olivier and Giorgio Flessati. They have 135 hectares of beautifully manicured vineyards and an ultra-modern cellar. In 2005 their first vintage won a Trophy and put Elqui on the map. This dazzling Sauvignon Blanc displays classic varietal character of elderflower and freshly mown grass with ripe melon and citrus fruit. Serve as an aperitif or partner with spicy Asian dishes or fish.
"Treat character, typical, grassy, tropical, caspicum notes. Very nice"
