Santa Luz Alba Sauvignon Blanc 2018 75cl

SKU: 41227
One of our best-selling Sauvignon Blancs, Santa Luz delivers far more than the price suggests. Very typical of this variety, it shows most of the characteristics of its more expensive New Zealand counterparts with real depth, crisp citrus fruit, etc.

  • Tasting Notes

    We were mightily impressed with this wine when we first tasted it. It shows great balance, with fresh, crisp citrus fruit and gooseberries on the palate - a real mouthful of fresh zesty flavours which slide seamlessly into a full finish reminiscent of lemon meringue pie. Great for any event from a posh dinner party to a bbq. A superb Sauvignon Blanc

    About

    The revision of Chile's production techniques in the last 40 years or so has had a significant impact on quality and consistency. With the introduction of modern equipment, stainless-steel vats and improved technology, much livelier, fresher and fruitier white wines are being produced. This has been key to the success of the Santa Luz wines.

    Fans of Sauvignon Blanc often sit in two camps; the Francophiles whose tipple would be a Sancerre or Pouilly Fume (and Touraine Sauvignon Blanc which also comes from the Loire) and the New World drinkers for whom the iconic New Zealand whites such as Cloudy Bay are heaven. Our view is that Santa Luz Sauvignon sits firmly between the two, showing much of the finesses of its French cousins and more than its share of gooseberry/citrus fruit so prevalent in New Zealand Sauvignons.

    Ideal with...

    A good match for all white fish and particularly flat fish such as sole served with a squeeze of lemon. Salads, cold meats such as chicken and veggie dishes also work well with it. We tend to open a bottle (or two) when we have friends round for nibbles or tapas too.
