Kalfu Kuda Sauvignon Blanc, Leyda 2014
Leyda Valley is a small sub-region of the San Antonio Valley wine region in Chile, located just 90 kilometres west of the Chilean capital, Santiago. This cool-climate region enjoys the effects of the cold Humboldt Current of the Pacific Ocean, and consequently produces bright, vibrant wines made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region is also responsible for excellent examples of Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah. This close proximity to the coast is what is driving growers to Leyda. Cold ocean breezes and morning fog moderate the overall temperatures, and the valley is therefore significantly cooler than its low latitude might suggest. These cool temperatures are complemented by warm sunshine during the long growing season, letting grapes ripen fully and develop complexity while still retaining acidity.
Pale green in colour. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas, such as grapefruit, pineapple and pear intermingle with general mineral and herbal notes. Elegant and well-structured, this wine is fresh thanks to its crisp acidity, which contributes to a clean and persistent finish.
