Sauvignon Blanc is one of Chile’s star whites – and it’s a real specialty at Luis Felipe Edwards (named Chilean Producer of the Year twice in a row at the International Wine & Spirit Competition and New World Producer of the Year at the 2018 Sommelier Wine Awards). Their Reserve-level Sauvignon Blanc scooped three international gold medals and two 90-plus point scores from Guía Peñín. Which means you’re in for a real treat here: Riversong is an exciting exclusive they make just for us.
Head winemaker, Nicolas Bizzarri, sourced the grapes from several top-notch sites across the cool (and gorgeous) Maule Valley, where vibrant sunshine and chilly evenings yield grapes with incredible aromatic intensity and flavor complexity. Inspired by the calming sound of the nearby river during harvest, (a sound the Mapuche tribe likened to the indigenous Fio-Fio bird), Nicolas named the wine “Riversong.”
This delivers both serious value and mega refreshment. Look for zesty citrus and cut grass aromas mingling on a palate filled with ripe mango and lychee characters. Makes for a lip-smacking aperitif, seafood partner or cheese plate accompaniment.
Sauvignon Blanc fans, this is a chance to taste for yourself why Chilean wines are some of the best – and most delicious – values around. Order today!
