Lot 302 2010 Leyda Valley Sauvignon Blanc is very consistent in both style and direction – citrus, melon and fresh cut grass lead to a mouth watering midpalate with juicy acidity and plenty of delicately rendered fruit.
Style: Light, Crisp

Lot 302 comes from the cool maritime climate of the Leyda Valley of Chile. In 2009, our Winemaker, Sam Spencer and I went down to Chile in search of some good wines. We found great wines. We discovered what is arguably some of our best whites to date. This wine in particular shows incredible complexity with such fun texture and structure. Not only is the soil beautiful, but the wines themselves are plain and simply delicious. As some are not as familiar or appreciative of Chile's wines, if there ever was a wine to change their there while outlook on Chile, it's this one.
