The warmer 2020 season meant we harvested the grapes earlier and more quickly than the year before, allowing us to maintain natural acidity and freshness in the 2020 Cariblanco Sauvignon Blanc. While a frost during the 2019 Chilean spring contributed to bud damage and a low yield of productive grapes, this meant that there was a high concentration of flavors among the grapes that remained and were chosen for harvest. This wine is abundant in creaminess and texture, with notes of dry grass and citrus fruits in the mouth. We hope you enjoy this uniquely crafted wine from an unusual year.
