This is the much-loved Sauvignon from the century-old Tarapacá estate offer excellent quality and superb value. Viña Tarapacá in the Maipo Valley was founded in 1874 by a successful businessman, Don Francisco de Rojas y Salamanca. He imported noble grape varieties from France and created a magnificent estate with high altitude vineyards cooled by breezes off the Pacific.
“Fantastic value for money” Peter Richards MW, Decanter
Crafted by top winemaker Sebastián Ruiz Flaño, this wine is powerfully aromatic with rich citrus intensity. It’s a most refreshing aperitif and suits spicy fish dishes and Far Eastern cuisine
The property has a pristine winery equipped with the latest cool fermentation technology – essential for crisp, modern whites
Tasting note: Delicate, pale green in the glass, the nose displays uplifting aromas of lemon zest, gooseberry and cut grass. The palate is fresh and zippy with notes of blackcurrant leaf and plenty of citrus character.
