The Wines

2013 Sauvignon Blanc
Peñalolén’s Sauvignon Blanc comes from Chile’s prestigious cool climate appellation, the Casablanca Valley. Lacaze demonstrates how impressive Chilean Sauvignon Blanc can be, especially when grown in the right places and guided by a talented winemaker. The use of natural, ripe fruit gives this wine a powerfully rich and complex flavor free from oak or residual sugar. The aromas of mandarin orange and fresh cut flowers, combined with good acidity make this Sauvignon Blanc a classic partner for food.

2011 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Low yields and hand harvesting indicate the care given to the superior fruit from this single-vineyard winery located on the gravelly slopes of the Maipo Valley. These standards extend to the wine-making process, with meticulous grape selection and aging in French oak barrels for 12 months. Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is a complex and velvety wine with a soft structure, spicy tannins and a fruity finish.
