Trewa was founded by the Aguirre family over 500 years ago and is still run by the descendants. They've consistently made some of the best wines in Chile.

Their talented head winemaker is Sergio Correa, who has increased the fame of the winery with his award-winning releases. Sergio is known for his delicate touch, especially with heavenly scented wines like our selection.

The estate vineyards of Trewa are located in the Villa Alegre region, whose climate is very similar to the Mediterranean, featuring wet winters and long, dry summers. Chilean winemakers have embraced Sauvignon Blanc in recent years, probably because it has been so successful here.

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most versatile grapes in the world. It is the backbone of white Bordeaux, one of the greatest wines made on Earth. It is the sole player in Pouilly-Fume and Sancerre and an important ingredient in Sauternes.

Our selection is in the fresher, lighter style of the varietal. Sergio's touch is evident here, as the lush peach and nectarine fruit is balanced with a piquant acidity, bordering on lime and pineapple.

From the engaging tropical nose through the citrus and herbal swing, this selection is a standout from beginning to grand and glorious end. You can't miss with salmon or swordfish.
