All Top 100 Wineries are profiled in Wine & Spirits’ 31st Annual Buying Guide out now. Commenting on the top-scoring Concha y Toro Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc 2016, the editors note: “The 2016 vintage was challenging, with a lot of humidity that threatened rot in the grapes, but [winemaker] Recabarren overcame the difficulties, obtaining a linear sauvignon, one that shares the tension of his best releases, a wine with a clear sense of place that crowns this year’s lineup from Concha y Toro.”
