Chilean White Wine and Its Flavours
The arguably best white wine comes from Chile! And how do these excellent wines taste? When it come to the flavours of Chilean white wine, various factors play a role, but the most important of them is your own preference. If you are thinking of ordering white Chilean wine, our online wine shop has a great selection for you.
Chilean White Wines and Varietals
The impressive flavour of Chilean white wine comes from – what else? - the best white wine grape varieties. The ideal Pacific climatic conditions in the wine growing regions of Chile make it possible for both red wine and white wine grape varieties to thrive. The classic white wine varieties in Chile are primarily Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. For a long time, the otherwise internationally popular Riesling played only a small role in Chile. Depending upon terroir, Chilean white wines made from the Riesling grape taste fruity and display a light minerality. Its diverse citrus aromas are particularly striking. Other well-known Chilean white wine varieties are:
- Sauvignon Blanc
- Chenin Blanc
