Los vinos frescos ganan cada vez más adeptos

New culinary trends are marking a shift in paradigm in the world of wine. The search for fresh and light wines over more potent ones is opening up new horizons for those who like to enjoy a good wine with their food. The subtle, fresh flavors of white wines are inviting and they are easier to pair with food during hot weather. Women tend to drink these wines with salads and lighter dishes. In countries like the United States, France, and Italy, this trend has been well established for years. In Chile, fresh wines are gaining more and more popularity and wineries have developed new and original grape varieties across the country. Viña Cousiño Macul has been part of this revolution by bringing noteworthy wines to the forefront. One of these, Sauvignon Gris, has a surprising freshness with a bouquet of wild flowers, citric fruits, and spices. Another example is the Doña Isidora Riesling, a full-bodied wine with exquisite acidity and light notes of apple blossom and limes. Other wines worth mentioning include the Rosé Reserva, a dry wine with sparkling acidity and low alcohol content, as well as the Gris Cabernet Sauvignon, which has a gentle copper color and unexpected body for this style, with juicy acidity, and notes of ripe red fruits.
