El Viejo del Valle Sauvignon Gris, Casablanca Valley


Please call or email us for an estimated delivery date

The only Sauvignon Gris in our list, there is just something reassuringly recognisable in this essentially Polynesian style of Sauvignon Gris—somewhere between Chile and New Zealand. Often used in Chile, not as a poor mans SB but as a wine that has real purpose, it’s a really good wine in its own right. It’s a big, aromatic cousin of Sauvignon Blanc but here, as you are drawn into the bottle, it retains the texture and structure of Casablanca’s marginal valley. The nose is already slightly evolved and there’s real intensity and perfume. The fruit notes are lifted and tropical and marry beautifully with fresh aroma of waxy lemons. An abundance of gooseberry, mango and melon fruit show throughout the palate and the finish is elegant and long. This is a deliciously bright and full flavoured white – think of it as a muscular Sauv Blanc that always wants to make a statement. The label captures some of Chile’s oldest and least represented grape varieties. ‘El Viejo del Valle’ or ‘The Old Man of the Valley’ celebrates the 1950s Chilean street graffiti.
