Karu means 'seed' for the Polynesian natives of Easter Island, the Rapa Nui. Big things often have small beginnings. These wines are traditional, fresh, young and fruity with an outstanding quality that comes from the Chilean Central Valley.
Karu Sauvignon Blanc 2017
With 250 hectares of Institute for Marketecology (IMO) and Demeter certified organic vineyards and a further 250 hectares in conversion, Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. Their spectacular Biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from all over the world. Jose Guilsasti (viticulture) and Alvaro Espinosa (winemaking) were key to establishing this project but there is a wealth of young talent involved. These innovative wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring. The flagship Coyam has already become one of Chiles iconic wines but the whole range excels.
Clean, clear, light greenish-yellow in colour, with a nose that presents the variety’s very characteristic aromas such as delicate fruity notes of lime, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. The fruit and herbal notes reappear on the crisp, vibrant palate.
