Profile: An extemely popular variety worldwide, capable of producing crisp, dry and aromatic whites. It is a very distinctive variety, carrying aromas of gooseberries, nettles, crushed blackcurrant leaves, and occasionally cat’s pee. The best examples offer some restraint of these natural characters, and flinty, smoky complexity to add intrigue. Some producers do utilise varying degrees of barrel fermentation to add texture and richness.
Classic Regions: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume (France), Marlborough (New Zealand), Adelaide Hills (Australia), Casablanca (Chile)
The wines offer great value. Nicely defined with clearly expressed varietal characters, they are forward and ready for drinking. The vineyards in Cachapoal are situated to the east of the valley on the foothills of the Andes.
