Having never been impressed by this Lurton-owned label's Sauvignon Blancs, consider this a pleasant surprise. It's nervy and citric on the nose, with hints of sweat and grapefruit. Yet the palate is very clean and fresh, with bright green apple, lime and melony flavors. Pithy but clear on the finish, with zing. It's what we hope for from Chilean SB.
