Surely it’s total madness to grow vines in a desert, especially one that’s been likened to the landscape of the moon? But the soaring altitude and purity of the air in Elqui Valley is heaven for winemaking and this zesty Sauvignon, handily in cans.
Chile's Elqui Valley has to be seen to be believed. Way up in the Andes Mountains, this rocky landscape gets so much sunshine it’s rumoured even the llamas need sunglasses. But that’s just what makes it paradise for winemakers. Overlooked by those laid-back llamas, the Sauvignon grapes soak up every ounce of supercharged sunshine. Then at night, that dizzying altitude (some of the highest vineyards in the world) kicks in, cooling the grapes to pure perfection, and locking in that brisk Sauvignon freshness. Rivers of sunny citrus, ripe melon, zingy cut grass and elderflower flow with every sip. It's the ultimate refreshment, especially when kept cool in these eco-friendly cans. Enjoy six, 250ml cans - each the equivalent of a large glass.
"Tried this because we were intrigued by the story and really pleased we did. Fantastic Sauvignon"
