Wine of the Week – Santa Carolina Sauvignon Blanc, Leyda Estate Reserva 2013

Santa Carolina’s Leyda Estate is located near the Pacific Ocean in Chile where the terroir lends aromatic complexity to the wines, with floral notes, touches of grapefruit and peach and minerality. Drink with salads, ceviches, and seafood. The winery has a rich tradition dating to 1875 when Louis Pereyra Cotapos hired a French winemaker to make top quality Chilean wines, named for his wife, Carolina.
In 1973, the cellars received National Monument status. Damaged in a major earthquake in 2010, the winery was rebuilt, the start of a new stage in its history.
Producing quality and improving and developing new production techniques has brought Santa Carolina numerous accolades and honors throughout the years across the variety of price ranges it offers. Go to http://www.santacarolina.cl/
