Richards releases his top 10 Chilean wines

Calyptra Gran Reserva Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2010 (Cachapoal, 13.5%)

Calyptra Gran ReservaComplex and intense, with a richly textured yet invigorating flavour profile.

There are a
 few smart oaked Sauvignons in Chile but to my mind this wine leads the charge.

It has a whiff of Bordeaux’s grapefruit, tangerine rind and mineral character but it’s pretty full throttle stuff, with preserved lemon, nutty and clotted cream complexity.
