  • Terroir
    Root: 1 Sauvignon blanc vineyards are located in Tapihue, a central portion of Chile’s famed Casablanca Valley that sits less than 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Maritime breezes keep temperatures cool while the bright daytime sun encourages a lengthy growing season, resulting in wines with bright, tropical and citrus flavors. The Root: 1 Sauvignon blanc is aged on the lees for two months in order to broaden the palate richness.
  • Features
    Pale green edges with a bright citrus bouquet and juicy tropical aromas. Lime, grapefruit, pineapple and pear flavors are vibrant and fresh. Smooth mineral notes and a hint of herbs creates complexity for this crisp and delightful wine, followed by an elegant finish.
  • Food Pairings
    Serve Root: 1 Sauvignon blanc with fresh ceviche, grilled shrimp or pork loin. A great match with grilled vegetables, roasted lemon chicken and fingerling potatoes. Delightful with a fresh salad with mixed greens, sliced pear and goat cheese.
