Ritual Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley Chile 2015  - Last Bottle

Ritual Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley Chile 2015

Yeah, that’s not a typo! 92 POINTS, $11!! Plus --- well, it’s National Hammock Day and what goes better with chillin’ in a hammock than crisp, juicy, bracing, lip-smacking, crushingly-bargain-priced-from-your-favorite-wine-merchant Sauvignon Blanc? Nothing! So let’s PARTY!

** We sold this some months back @ $12. We had another opportunity to buy another parcel -- at an EVEN MO-BETTAH $11!! Madness. Will go fast...if you had it last time, you know what an outrageous buy this is! 

On a super-serious note, we are REALLY super-serious about Sauv Blanc when we taste. We RUN AWAY from the grass/hay/cat pee/green bean/jalapeno styles --- we literally run. Nope, we want sweet grapefruit, lemon/lime, lemon pie, a bit of tropicality and we want cheek-smacking, hoo-boy, lip-licking freshness. This is imperative!! So, we really liked this one, oh yes, but we nearly fainted upon getting it at this price. You NEED a case of this. $11, c’mon!! LOAD UP, we say!

Did we say 92 points? Lemon pie, crisp pear, starfruit, sweet herbs, even a little mint and tarragon going on here, clean and fresh and soul-satisfying. BOOM! Your drinking needs are done! Go get in the hammock! While it lasts...

Grapes are hand harvested at night, maximizing freshness and vibrancy with whole cluster pressing directly into concrete eggs, neutral barrels and stainless steel barrels.

About The Producer

Crafting fine wine is steeped in Ritual and grounded in terroir. This wine is a reflection of this special place. With low-impact farming methods in the vineyards, and gentle handling with the revival of Old World winemaking techniques in the cellar, the results are in the bottle.

The grapes are hand-harvested in small batches at first light in the cool morning and carefully double-sorted. Whole berries are added to open-top tanks with hand-punch downs during fermentation. Wines are basket pressed, and only native yeasts are used obtaining a natural balance and greater purity. Ritual wines use different containers that deliver unique characteristics.

The Casablanca Valley is a cool climate area on the northwestern side of Chile’s coastal range less than 30 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Our estate occupies the extreme eastern end of the valley and is noted for its gentle Pacific breezes and early morning fog, making it the ideal climate for producing cool climate varietals. Ritual Sauvignon Blanc comes from La Gloria block, located in the coolest part of our estate, giving us fresh fruit flavors with bright acidity.
