WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
Gaucho celebrates the great cowboy
heritage of Chile and Argentina, which
was similar to the early west in the
United States. The winery was founded
by the Aguirre family over 500 years ago
and is still run by their descendants. It
has consistently made some of the best
wines in Chile.
The talented, young winemaker is
Claudio Gonçalves who has increased
the fame of the winery with his award-
winning releases. Claudio is known for his
delicate touch, especially with heavenly
scented wines like our selection.
Their estate vineyards are located in the
Villa Alegre region, which is very similar
to a Mediterranean climate, featuring
wet winters and long, dry summers.
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. It is the sole player
in Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre and an
important ingredient in Sauternes.
Our selection is in the fresher, lighter side
of the varietal. Claudio’s touch is evident
here as the lush peach and nectarine
fruit is balanced with the 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. And it can’t miss with
salmon or swordfish.
