De Martino Parcela 5 Sauvignon Blanc 2017 - Wine

Tasting Notes

Layered, complex notes of citrus, herbs, lychee and pineapple aromas. Surprising volume on the palate, again layered, with an incredible persistance. Will age and become more complex.

Critics Reviews

James Suckling 94pts (2017) - This is a very characterful sauvignon blanc that shows fresh herbs that are in no way overpowering and add to the complexity of the Chinese plums, citrus and barely ripe apricots. Medium-to full-bodied on the palate, which shows an impressive core of stone fruit and plenty of flinty and clove undertones.

Producer Profile

The De Martino family arrived in Chile from Italy in 1934 and settled in Isla de Maipo. Today the winery is managed by brothers Sebastian and Marco De Martino who share an ongoing focus in creating wines which represent the family and their origin in the purest way possible. Day to day operations are run by the impressive and well-travelled Sebastian and Marco De Martino, with winemaking under the watchful eye of one of Chile's finest winemakers, Marcelo Retamal. Between them, Sebastian, Marco and Marcelo have transformed De Martino over the past decade into arguably Chile's most progressive and dynamic producer. De Martino is at the top of its game in Chile, with a range of wines that spans from Limari in the north to Itata in the south. They work sustainably across all their vineyards and use organic practices for their Itata and single vineyard wines. These wines are each fermented with native yeasts, avoiding any additives that may alter their personality. Likewise, aging is made in stainless steel, concrete, 5000 litres foudres, used barriques (average age ten years old), to allow the wines to reflect their origin.
