Koyle, Costa Sauvignon Blanc, Colchagua, Chile 2012
18/20pts (93/100pts)
Recently planted, the coast of Colchagua Valley can offer whites as refreshing as any other coastal site in Chile, proved here. Rich in limey and flinty flavours, its citric acidity gives a delicious tension and grip. A white for summer nights.
