2022 Cousiño-Macul Isidora Sauvignon Gris, Maipo Valley, Chile
Isidora Sauvignon Gris presents a bright and clean yellowish color. In nose we can perceive aromas that remind us of peach, fresh pineapple and floral notes. It has a high acidity in mouth and peach notes are confirmed. It is a fresh wine with a long lasting mouthfeel.
Their season had higher temperatures than average which produced a faster ripening and earlier harvest. Its main characteristics were low yield, good health conditions and quality of the fruit. The decision of harvesting earlier was key for this season and helped to obtain wines of excellent quality, moderate acidity and expressive aromas. Harvesting Sauvignon Gris was performed manually during the first days of March. The grapes were brought to the winery, and the entire cluster was carefully pressed, without the presence of oxygen to preserve the fresh aromas of the variety.
Chile is a fascinating country when it comes to wines and viticulture, and by far the most internationally renowned wine region in the country is the Valle Central. This expansive valley is located close to the Chilean capital of Santiago, and stretches between the Maipo Valley and Maule Valley, a long, winding fault through the mountainous regions of the country which is now almost completely covered by vineyards producing wines of exquisite character.
We couldn't agree more. Especially if you want a wine with versatility, expressive, juicy fruit and tasty acidity for freshness, but something fun and appealing to everyone in the crowd. This could be the fall go-to white!
