Very small representation in the US, mostly found in Colorado. This is by far the best QPR Chilean Sauvignon Blanc I have found in past 3 years, priced in the $16 range, its better than most Napa SB's I've consumed, and I know that's a bold statement. Earthy undertones, low acidity make this wine ideal with fish or shellfish. Apricot, melon, pear and grass. Beautiful structure and finish. I'd dare to put this at 93-94 points or for folks that hate scores, I'd strongly recommend it.
