Sauvignon Blanc - Humo Blanco - Organic - Araucano - Chile
Organic and from Biodynamic certified vineyards
Francois Lurton (of the famous Bordeaux family) is renowned for creating distinctive and high-quality wines. He purchased the Araucano Estate in the year 2000 after realising the potential of the cool, ocean influenced site at Lolol in the Colchagua Valley. The estate has 26 hectares of vines and is certified organic. The estate also works to biodynamic principles.
A fine nose of limes, nectarine and white flowers moves to an elegant and refined palate with fresh acidity and a slightly honeyed texture. Lemon, limes and exotic fruits all appear on the long and pleasing finish.
This will pair very well with pan seared scallops served with a lime sauce and fresh rocket.
You've just have to love a wine grown in the 'Lolol' valley!
