Review: Veramonte Organic Wines – 2020 Sauvignon Blanc and 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

Chile’s Veramonte is no stranger to these pages. Recently the brand overhauled its packaging and refocused its emphasis on its commitment to 100% organic farming. Today we look at the latest releases of both its organic sauvignon blanc and cabernet sauvignon bottlings — both of which are decidedly bargain priced.

2020 Veramonte Organic Sauvignon Blanc – Innocuous and uncomplicated, there’s a surprising lack of flavor or varietal character here, just a gently grassy wine that’s informed by a touch of melon and some coconut notes. Easygoing, it only hints at some sweeter tropical notes as the finish slowly arrives. B-

2018 Veramonte Organic Cabernet Sauvignon – Light-bodied and quite fruity, you could be freely forgiven for failing to realize this was cabernet sauvignon. Gentle plum and cherry notes, filtered through a touch of currant and a pinch of tannin, lead the way to a lightly sweet finish that shows modest acidity and a touch of licorice and earth. Surprisingly easy-drinking, and more involved than I’d originally suspected. B+
