2011 Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc "La Gloria" Reserva Casablanca Valley
Wine & Spirits
From the warmer, eastern reaches of Casablanca, this sauvignon is generous in its citrus flavors, balanced by refreshing acidity. For aperitifs. Huneeus Vintners, Rutherford, CA
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc La Gloria displays a fragrant nose of grapefruit, spring flowers, and baking spices. Fresh and lively in the glass with just a hint of sweetness, this savory effort is a very good value meant for drinking over the next 12-18 months. eRobertParker.com #199
Light straw and saline notes lead to a solid core of gooseberry, citrus and chive flavors. Drink now. 13,000 cases made. –NW
Augustin Huneeus, famous for his work at many wineries including his Quintessa in Napa Valley, looked to his native Chile for an outstanding location for a new winery and found his spot in the stunning Casablanca Valley. Thus was born Veramonte. Veramonte uses sustainable farming and is moving the property over to organic certification. Chief winemaker Rodrigo Soto is now back in his home country to lead the progress of and oversee the winemaking operations. Always striving for a sense of place their wines show a beautiful expression of their varietals and wonderful terroir.
