William Cole Vineyards Columbine Special Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

William Cole Vineyards Columbine Special Reserve Sauvignon BlancThe William Cole estate is situated in the Casablanca Valley, near the city of Casablanca.   There is also a William Cole Vineyards in St. Helena, California, but the wineries are unrelated.  William Cole Vineyards, the Chilean version, is owned and operated by William Cole, while William Cole Vineyards in St. Helena is owned and operated by William Ballentine, along with his family, including a son named Cole.  But that’s neither here, nor there.
William Cole Vineyards (the one in Casablanca, Chile) produces an array of traditional varietals, along with Carménére.  Their sauvignon blanc is sourced from cooler micro-climates that, William Cole claims, enable the wine to retain a natural acidity.  The grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for a period of 15 days.
