The Myth of Motu Nui Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Chile / Aconcagua
Andy's Tasting Notes
This is a real cracker! Has the style and quality of more expensive New Zealand versions. Crisp, zingy, aromatic and stylishly elegant, yet with real expression and concentration.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in three excellent sites across the Leyda and San Antonio D.O. The proximity of the vineyards to the Pacific Ocean (only 10km’s away) and its fresh coastal breezes ensures grapes ripen slowly. This allows the grapes to retain their natural citrus flavours and freshness but also to develop great aromatics. Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Leyda are some of the first to be harvested in Chile, and winemaking is simple to preserve this crunchy, bright fruit. Cool fermentation in stainless steel is followed by a couple of months on their fine lees which adds texture and depth. Bottled early to retain the primary characters, flavours and freshness of this enchanting fruit.
