2010 Gran Verano Sauvignon Blanc Colchagua Valley (3L Box) (cannot ship)

SKU #1070293

Here's a great deal in delicious crisp, refreshing white wine that overdelivers in value for the price. This Sauvignon Blanc from Chile is the perfect aperitif or go-to entertaining option, with pure citrus flavors, wonderful balance, and none of the jalapeño or tropical fruit character which inexpensive Sauvignon Blanc from Chile occasionally shows. At $8.33/liter (doing the math this equals $5.58/btl) this is defintely a top contender for white wine value of the season. Not a bad thing to have in the fridge....

What’s in the box? Sauvignon Blanc! Specifically New World SB that’s done well, tastes good and begs for a place in your fridge. Lime and orange notes abound, and there is an underlying weight and a silky mouthfeel that belies its modest price. A lovely, refreshing drink to have on hand for summer

A 3L box of Sauvignon Blanc for only 25 bucks? Now that's a bargain. That is 4 bottles of 750ml ! And yes, it taste great!

Additional Information:


Sauvignon Blanc

- One of the best known "international" varieties originally cultivated in France and considered the parent of, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon's wonderfully distinctive aromatics generate some of wine's most colorful descriptors, among them "cat pee," herbaceous, grassy, citrusy the world over. In France, the apex of Sauvignon Blanc production is the Loire Valley, in the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where the terroir expresses itself most beautifully through the grape. Sauvignon Blanc is also the leading white grape varietal in Bordeaux, where it is paired with the fatter, richer Sémillon to varying degrees. Relatively easy to cultivate, though more suited to cool climates, Sauvignon Blanc has made inroads in Europe outside of France, especially in Northeastern Italy's Friuli and Alto Adige, but also on the Slovenian border. These lovely wines are often overshadowed by Sauvignon Blanc's achievements in the New World, namely New Zealand, South Africa and California. New Zealand's Sauvignon Blancs, more conspicuously fruity than most French examples, landed the small island nation on the world wine map in the late-1980s and 1990s. South African Sauvignons are one of the most successful international varieties produced in that country and are often quite elegant and affordable. In California, Robert Mondavi managed to, almost single-handedly, created a market for Sauvignon Blanc by renaming his oak-fermented version Fumé Blanc. While some wineries still use the name, California Sauvignon Blanc has secured its place in the California wine pantheon, particularly those from the Napa Valley. Washington State, Chile and Argentina also have considerable plantings of the grape.


- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine. Click for a list of bestselling items from Chile.
