Superb quality and craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile's most admired and innovative wine estates.
The “120” series of wines was named after the historic event when 120 soldiers led by General Bernardo O'Higgins took refuge in Santa Rita's cellars in 1814 during Chile's Independence war.
These wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, and early bottled to preserve each variety's fruitiness and natural aromas. The 120 wines are young, fresh, elegant and fruity, perfectly well-balanced with soft tannins and good acidity.
Their exceptional value makes them an outstanding choice for rounding out our everyday meals.
The 120 series is composed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Shiraz as well as limited releases such as Viognier, Riesling, Merlot-Shiraz, Shiraz-Malbec and Franc-Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our 120 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing. Its fruity aroma of citrus blossoms and peaches is well balanced by delicate herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics enhanced by a pleasant acidity intensify the wine's freshness and smooth lingering on the palate.
