ARESTI - Special Release - Sauvignon Blanc - DO Curico Valley

ARESTI - Special Release - Sauvignon Blanc - DO Curico Valley - 2016

A very clean wine showing good purity of fruit. With fresh, zingy acidity, good concentration of fruit and a very pleasant weight to the palate. A Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of orange, scallion, vanilla spice and French oak barrels. It has typical rose petal and lychee aromas on a long finish, with lemon juice, white pineapple and lemon-lime flavours, that is zesty and cleansing.
