92 Points Descorchados Chilean Sauvignon Blanc/Certified Vegan

After working as a wine merchant alongside his father and brother since the 1930’s, Miguel Viu Manent made the decision to branch out on his own in 1965, purchasing a historic vineyard and winery in Chile’s Colchagua Valley.  The estate was and still is one of the most well-exposed sites in the region, and it included 150 hectares of pre-phylloxera massal selections from France. After nearly 100 years this firm is still family owned and operated (a rarity in Chile, especially for a winery of this size), all farming is certified sustainable, and two of Chile’s top names consult with the winery on a permanent basis – Roberto Pizarro (vineyard management) and Paul Hobbs (winemaking).

The 2021 Viu Manent Secreto Sauv Blanc is light greenish-yellow in color. The nose is expressive with aromas of white fruit, lychee, grapefruit, white flowers, and sea salt. The palate has significant volume and weight yet still very fresh and well balanced, with depth and a saline note that comes from the coastal influence due to its proximity to the sea.

“Secreto” means “Secret” because up to 15% of the wine has up to 15% of a “Secret Blend” only known by the Winemaker. The grapes for this wine came from two vineyards in different sectors of the Casablanca. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
