[From the 2017 vintage] This is a pleasant herbal-scented sauvignon blanc blending a bit of Sancerre with a lot of New Zealand. Fresh and floral with a touch passionfruit. What it lacks in intensity it gives back in drinkability and freshness. Good value. Try this with steamed mussels or fresh goat cheese. Viña Tinajas del Maule Winery was founded in 1997 when the Mena Undurraga family acquired old, established vineyards in the town of Villa Alegre in the Maule Valley of Chile. The existing vineyards and adobe buildings and oak casks that dated back to 1918 were all updated while stainless steel tanks for vinification and bottling was installed.
