Intrigued with making a white wine from Quintessa, Agustin Huneeus planted a small plot of Sauvignon Blanc at the estate in 2002. Illumination first emanated from this little vineyard, its rays penetrating the palates of sommeliers, friends and guests who requested it for their own cellars. He now shares this limited production wine with kindred spirits seeking illumination via wines that express their place of origin.
(From 2014 Vintage) 2014 Illumination exudes bright tropical fruit aromas that intermingle with notes of fresh herbs, orange blossom and stone fruit. On the palate, a luscious interplay of exotic Asian pear, papaya, lime, orange zest and a hint of minerality. The finish is bright, creamy and refreshing.
Blend: 52% Sauvignon Blanc Musqué, 32% Sauvignon Blanc, 16% Semillon
