Product information


Viña Leyda, a Leyda Valley pioneer, has been present in the San Antonio Valley since 1998. In 2001, Viña Leyda succeeded in registering the Leyda Valley Denomination of Origin by demonstrating the area’s unique, privileged conditions: its coastal Mediterranean climate and vineyards planted in ancient soils that are over 120 million years old and situated  just 4km from the Pacific Ocean.


Today, Viña Leyda is internationally recognised as a boutique winery, which produces the finest Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc in Chile. It should be noted that in only 20 years, it has positioned itself as the most acclaimed coastal winery in Chile with international accolades. This achievement is thanks to the outstanding viticultural and winemaking golden duo, Viviana Navarrete (recognized asChilean  Winemaker of the year 2022 by Tim Atkin) and Tomás Rivera  (recognized as Viticulturist of the year 2021 by Tim Atkin), who have applied their knowledge and philosophy to making wines that are in touch with and best express the cool climate and soils of granitic origin in the Coastal Mountain Range.


The winery focusses on expressing the very best terroir and varietal expression by carrying out exploratory work to select the varieties appropriate for the cool climate and by seeking balance and intervening with the plant as little as possible to ensure that it is connected to the land and merely guided by humans. This enables it to recognise its own terroir.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: Pale yellow with green hues. Nose: The nose has great expression and aromatic intensity, revealing citrus fruit like grapefruit, limes and mandarins, along with herbaceous notes like freshly mown grass and lemon verbena. Palate: In the mouth, this is a well-balanced wine with crisp, racy acidity, a creamy texture and a citrus note in the finish.
History
After an extensive search, we found an exceptional place in the coastal valley of Leyda, between 4 and 12 km from the Pacific Ocean, where we make wines with identity. We are pioneers and experts in the Leyda Valley, an exclusive cool-coastal valley with just 1,800 hectares. The Reserva wines represent the Leyda terroir and always aim to respect the fruit and identity of each variety. These wines are expressive, direct, fresh and juicy. This Sauvignon Blanc is a pure wine that is true to the variety. It has great aromatic intensity, clearly revealing its cool-climate character. The plots in the "El Maitén” vineyard have soils that are granitic (which lend the palate vibrancy and juiciness) and red clay (which provide creaminess and viscosity). The soils of the “El Granito” vineyard are on marine terraces with granite in the profile, delivering wines of greater aromatic intensity with fresh mouths and great depth.
Regional Information
This wine is made from grapes from two of our own vineyards: “El Maitén” (located 12km from the Pacific Ocean) and “El Granito” (situated just 4km from the sea, and one of Chile's most extreme vineyards). The grapes are from a selection of different plots with different levels of exposure and clonal selection, thereby enhancing the complexity of the final blend.

Vinification Details
The grapes were manually harvested into 500-kg bins when they had reached 21.4°-21.8°Brix. Once at the winery, 70% of the grapes were destemmed and 30% were whole-cluster pressed. The juice obtained was then chilled to between 8°C and 10°C and clarified to 50-70 NTU with pectic enzymes. Next, the alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures (13°C-13.5°C at the start of the fermentation, finishing at 16°C). It lasted for 18 days. Finally, the wine was aged over its fine lees for 4 months and bâtonnage took place weekly to enhance the texture on the palate.

Lovely Wine

I bought this as a new wine for me and it was lovely. Crisp, citrussy and mineral. From a cool climate area of Chile, the flavour is a delight.

Good but better on the market for the money

Im reviewing this product because I received a free sample from Ocado. Reasonably lively drop with some natural effervescence. Nice hints of basil and Kiwi with a slightly flinty finish. Pleasant but Im not sure Id pay full price considering some of the other SBs on Ocado

Refreshing

I was sent a free sample from Ocado in exchange for a review. We enjoyed this wine, we dont often drink white wine and I wouldnt pick a white wine from Chile. It was very pleasant and refreshing, dry and not too acidic. Will buy again.
