This has the jalapeno scent of elqui as well as its simple freshness, pure acidity and citrus aromas. Mild saline notes provide complexity.

Top 100 'Best Buys' of 2013; Rank, #65
Minerally opening aromas yield to a tight collection of green herb and citrus scents that steer clear of anything feline or grassy. This offers shear, zesty flavors of gooseberry, lime and tarragon in front of a stony feeeling finish that’s crisp but not grating.
-Michael Schachner (7/1/2013)
"This fresh and vibrant 100% Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect everyday sipper. Bright and expressive flavors with a nice balnce mineral and citrus notes. Nicely balanced with pleasant acidity. Perfect aperitif or with asian chicken salad or jumbo shrimp cocktail."
Color: Pale yellow, with green shades, almost transparent, clean and bright.
Aroma: Marked by its freshness and intensity, with present citric fruits, such as grapefruit, and citric fruit’s rind, interlaced with notes to green chili, boxwood and mineral touches to gunpowder and sea salt.
Palate: A vibrant wine, fresh, fruity and with very pronounced acidity and minerality. It stands out for its identity and freshness. Its notable volume leads to a long and persistent finish.
Ideal as an aperitif, with fish and shellfish. Serve cold, best at 9°C to 11°C (48°F to 52°F). Alcohol: 12.9%
This wine is made of grapes stemming from the best vineyards Viña San Pedro currently counts with in the Elqui Valley, which presents frank sandy and limy soils, with angular stones along the whole cross section. These vineyards have a h4 maritime influence thanks to its location, approximately 20 Km in direct line from the Pacific Ocean. Every morning, a sea-cloudiness stemming from the Elqui River, arises over the vines, remaining approximately until mid-day. Therefore, it has a cold climate, with relatively low maximum temperatures and good ventilation given the local windiness, what favours obtaining healthy grapes. The vines are trellised to a vertical shoot position and drip irrigated.
Vina San Pedro has been crafting wines in Chile for nearly one-hundred and fifty years. Once a pioneer, today a New World? innovator, in between San Pedro helped build an industry stretching from the Elqui Valley to the Bío Bío Valley.
Castillo de Molina was San Pedro's first Reserve line of wines and has become a renowned Chilean reserve wine the world over. Its current direction is to identify the best Chilean terroirs for each variety, and thus obtain the highest individual expression for every single one. Castillo today offers eleven varieties, stemming from the most diverse viticulture? regions in Chile, including Carménère from Maule, Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Cachapoal and a smashing Sauvignon Blanc? from the Elqui Valley. Castillo wines are well known and acknowledged by critics and consumers alike, awarded with numerous prizes, medals and scores in specialized publications and wine blogs.
