There are so many Chilean Sauvignon Blancs that are under £10 so why did we choose this one? Focused on vineyards in Curico, Los Espinos combines cutting edge winemaking with regional typicity to provide a range that is at the beating heart of the country. In terms of quality versus value this really stood out and as we researched we found that this quality conscious producer takes a huge amount of care during the winemaking process. Practices such as hand pruning, night harvesting and the use of selected yeast amongst much more all result in an extremely well made wine. In addition to this the wine is made up of free run juice (the best quality juice you can get).
Chilean Sauvignon Blanc has a unique style, it is less intense than those from New Zealand and has a softer acidity and riper fruit than the famous French examples such as Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. Bursting with vibrant zesty citrus fruit and a hint of exotic guava, hugely refreshing and endlessly quaffable. Soft, super juicy with a long, full flavoured finish.
Really good with chargrilled squid, big garlicky prawns, whitebait and fish and chips from the chippy.
