WineDiva's Review

Leyda falls under the umbrella of VSPT (Vina San Pedro Tarapaca), which consists of several labels across six Chilean and two Argentine wineries. VSPT is the second largest wine exporter in Chile (Gato Negro accounts for the vast quantity of that) and in the top three fine wine producers in the country. The first winery, San Pedro was established in 1865, which the label of the same name plays homage to.
VSPT established the cool climate wine growing region of Leyda (named for the nearby town) 25 years ago and are one of only a few producers there still.
Sauvignon Blanc is a specialty of the house and this lifted and snappy version hits the sweet spot. Classic gooseberry and green apples, elderflower, honey and grass clippings aromas lead to a clean and crunchy palate with lovely weight, concentration and a creamy but mouthwatering finish. Great value!
