Last year Harpers review on Chile, the Mediterranean blend Vibo Punta del Viento was named Star of Chile. This year the awarded one is our Sauvignon Blanc Viu Manent Reserva 2018 as Star of Colchagua. It is a wine from the colder areas of the Colchagua Valley, fresh and fruity, excellent to drink as an aperitif, that goes well with cuisine based on fish and seafood.
Judging feedback says: “Good wine value! Green fruits, apple, gooseberry with lime and hint of spice on the finish, punchy, full flavoured. Quality flavours, nice floral character, good balance of fruit and acidity, good length”. The wine retails around £10.50-£12. Available mainly in on trade.
