Although Estampa is best known for its Fina Reserva red wines, Estampa’s 2017 Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is every bit as compelling as the estate’s Fina Reserva red wines. The 2017 Estampa Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is an artful blend of predominantly Sauvignon Blanc with small amounts of Chardonnay and Viognier. The addition of Chardonnay adds texture and mouthfeel, while Viognier augments the wine’s already attractive aroma: citrus scents mingle with herbal tones and freshly cut grass, offering a delightful perfume that goes far beyond what one expects from Sauvignon Blanc alone. In the mouth, the wine’s generous tropical fruit flavors and fresh acidity come to fore, providing both counterpoint and pleasing refreshment. Drink this delightful Sauvignon Blanc blend now through 2020. For optimum enjoyment we suggest moderate chilling (40° F) of the delicious 2017 Estampa Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy!
The stylish 2017 Estampa Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc thrives at table. It offers the ideal accompaniment to poultry, seafood, salads, spicy Asian cuisines, vegetables, and many kinds of cheeses. Chicken salads with walnuts and apricot, peach, or mango make especially tasty accompaniments to Estampa’s racy 2017 Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc. Seared Mahi Mahi with a basil butter sauce, mild creamy curries, and noodle dishes such as Pad Thai make splendid accompaniments, too. Pumpkin soup and roasted root vegetables (particularly carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes and spicy butternut squash) provide more winning companions to serve with Estampa’s comely 2017 Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc. And there is no finer wine than Sauvignon Blanc to serve with creamy cow, sheep and goat’s milk cheeses. Buen Provecho!
Estampa specializes in fashioning blends of the finest Chilean grape varietals. In fact, Estampa appears to be the only winery in Chile that specializes in the production of blends, a technique used by Classified Bordeaux Châteaux that consists of carefully combining two or more fine grape varieties, each contributing its best characteristics, to create wines of both tremendous balance and unique personality. Located in Chile’s picturesque Colchagua Valley, Estampa turns out an extensive portfolio of wines, each with grace, charm and complexity, but none constitutes finer quality and value than the estate’s Fina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, this month’s feature.
Viña Estampa began in 2001 thanks to the vision and entrepreneurial spirit of Miguel González-Ortiz, the winery’s owner and current president. However, the Estampa story really reaches back to the 19th century with Manuel González-Diequez, a Spanish immigrant and grandfather of the González-Ortiz family and great-grandfather of the González-Pagola family. Manuel González-Diequez acquired a wheat-flour mill in 1897 near the church that had been named the “La Estampa Mill.” Miguel González-Ortiz and his forbearers had for decades dedicated their energies to managing and maintaining the legacy of the company that had become an icon of the food industry. With their ties to agribusiness and viticulture, the family ventured into the Colchagua Valley in 1988, where they planted vineyards and erected a modern winery. Although relative newcomers to the crafting of wine, the González-Pagola family continues the family legacy and unwavering commitment to hard work, high quality, well-being for all, and contributing to the country's progress with the help of a formidable team that includes chief winemaker Johana Pereira and consulting enologist Attilio Pagli, whose Brunello di Montalcino wines have earned three perfect 100 scores from Wine Spectator and James Suckling.
