Our crisp, unoaked Sauvignon Blanc tastes of summer nights. It’s a young wine from an old place – the volcanic heart of Chile’s historic Maule Valley. With a tropical nose and bright finish, this wine pairs beautifully with your favorite fresh produce, and a side of lively conversation.
Culinary Delights to serve with our Sauvignon Blanc
Far from just a summer delight, our Sauvignon Blanc tastes delicious all year round. This wine's lightness and acidity is a delicious accompaniment while slurping Oysters.
If bivalves don't appeal, we love this Scalloped Tomatoe recipe for a hearty and flavorful vegetarian dish.
Archer Roose winemaker, Luca Hodgkinson, believes wine is all about connection. "The connection between taste of a wine and the pleasure it brings, to the soil and land it has been produced from, is the essence of life." This ethos drives Luca to champion sustainable methods for all of our partners and to produce more natural wines.
As wine lovers, Luca believes we are perennial explorers. "Diversity is the beauty of wine and the best way to learn more is through travel... Wine is about experiences." This can be for far-flung sojourns or at the home with family and friends.
Favorite recipe: Escamarlans amb pollastre i xocolata, a catalan dish of prawns, chicken in a wine and chocolate sauce.
Favorite toast: "Let’s drink to grief, let’s drown it, comrade of my wretched youth, where is the jar? Pour out and down it, wine will make us less uncouth!"
The Maule Valley is one of the oldest wine producing regions of Chile, with a rich history dating back to Spanish colonial settlement. It’s a region that’s being rediscovered by wine lovers as a new generation of winemakers revitalize the industry.
The Mena Undurraga family has been working since 1997 to restore and upgrade a century-old property in the Maule Valley. We have been impressed with their commitment to respect and honor the past, while investing in the future. Historic adobe buildings sit alongside state-of-the-art equipment. Modern methods are applied to some of Chile’s oldest vineyards.
The Maule Valley is renowned for its cool, wet climate. High rainfall allows the vineyard to minimize industrial irrigation. The Sauvignon Blanc is harvested at night and immediately pressed to capture and preserve the vibrant characteristics of the fruit.
