Ritual Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Bottle
|Region||Chile, Casablanca Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Ritual Sauvignon Blanc is produced with grapes from Casablanca. The grapes are picked at different points of ripeness and fermented in diverse vessels: stainless steel, used barrique and concrete eggs. The whole clusters were pressed and the juice fermented with native yeasts. It was kept with lees for some eight months before being bottled. The idea is to have a Sauvignon Blanc that is about the palate and the texture rather than an exuberant and aromatic version. It's a little reduced but their zone, and especially in a cold year like 2016, it is quite austere. So, this is fresh and vibrant, very tasty, happy but serious. Very good Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc and very good value. 48,00 bottles were filled in November 2016.
Wine SpectatorLots of grassy and herbal notes accent the tart white fruit flavors. Flinty hints show on the finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastGritty, oily, off-putting aromas announce a wine that's not holding up. Its wide palate lacks precision, tasting as burnt and bitter as it smells. From a rainy vintage, it's no longer in prime form.
