Siegel Special Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Vina Siegel
Chile - Leyda Valley

The Special Reserve wines represent the union of tradition and innovation in two generations. The grapes are sourced through careful selection of their best vineyards in the cool coastal Leyda Valley region. Siegel Special Reserve Sauvignon Blanc offers a pale yellow color with green hues and reveals intense and complex aromas of grapefruit and pear accented by mineral notes. The palate is balanced and juicy with a vibrant acidity and a soft, lingering finish.

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Appealing aromas of lime and grapefruit set up a pure citrusy palate. Lime, passion fruit and grapefruit flavors are textbook for Leyda SB, while this fades away slowly and with zero bitterness or pyrazines."

vinous logo"(raised entirely in stainless steel tanks) Green-tinged straw. Zesty, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complicated by hints of white flowers, jalapeño and chalky minerals. Sappy, penetrating lime zest and pear skin flavors show good depth and a spine of smoky minerality. Closes tight, minerally and long, featuring repeating minerality and a hint of succulent herbs.- Josh Raynolds"

wa88"The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc Special Reserve, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, seemed slightly more herbaceous in the mouth than its sibling, with more fig, gun-flint and earth, which made me wonder if I didn't prefer the slightly less expensive one to the more prestigious bottling. Readers will have to make that choice, but both are good values. Drink now."

vinous logo 250"Green-tinged yellow. Incisive, high-pitched aromas of lime, pink grapefruit and quince are complemented by anise and candied ginger. Taut and sharply focused on the palate, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors that deepen and spread out on the back half. The gingery note comes back on the long, nervy finish, which features a refreshing jolt of chalky minerals. - Josh Raynolds"
