In 1982, Pablo Morande, one of Chile’s most influential winemakers of Chile, discovered the potential of Casablanca Valley as a viticulture region. Located 30 km from the coast, no one then believed that the region had the potential to become an agricultural area. But after a trip to California’s Carneros, Pablo noticed the similarities between the two regions: the coastal proximity, the rolling hills and the cooling oceanic breezes. Joining forces with his brother, Pablo rolled the dice and purchased the coolest land that he could find, and planted Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Three years later, he shared the fruits of his labor with others, including Franciscan in Napa Valley, and soon enough others started planting there.
Produced in Casablanca Valley just a few kilometers from the Pacific Ocean, Mahu Sauvignon Blanc highlights the coastal expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Cooling breezes contribute to the wines refreshing, zesty flavors of lemon, lime and passion fruit. The wine is dry and mineral driven on the finish with notes of lemon curd and grapefruit. Perfect for fish, especially ceviche, as well salads, avocado and grilled chicken.
