Ocean breezes bring a savory saline balance to the wine’s intense fruit character.
Bright in color with gentile notes of green and light yellow. In the nose, it shows intensity with the expression of tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple and passion fruit. It is complimented by a soft citric sensation as well as spicy and floral notes, reminiscent of ginger and jasmine. In the mouth it shows a balanced acidity, viscosity and long complex finish.
Ideal with goat cheese, shellfish, oysters, and mild fish.
In 1999, the Garces Silva family planted their first vines in Leyda, a more extreme coastal setting than most of Casablanca to the north, where the boom in plantings was already well underway. When they built Amayna in 2002, it was the area’s first winery. Diego Rivera makes this sauvignon in stainless steel, presenting it’s luscious, ripe fruit in the context of desert freshness—ripe notes of kumquat and pineapple, rich agave depths and salted-cucumber crunch. It’s deeply flavorful, a deliciously refreshing coastal white.Wine & Spirits August 2019
Aromas of chalk and apples, as well as lemons with a fresh palate that delivers an array of nectarines in delicious mode.James Suckling April 2019
Dusty lime and ocean breeze aromas are fresh and chiseled. There's more to the palate of this coastal SB than many of its kin, with pushy acidity and volume. Green apple, citrus and salty flavors conclude on a round finish with ample body.Wine Enthusiast May 2019
