From the bottle:
“This zesty Sauvignon Blanc has fresh aromas reminiscent of lemons, gooseberries as well as those of tropical fruits. In the mouth, the wine shows a crisp ripe acidity and good persistence of flavour on the finish. Best served chilled.
We’ve uncovered a number of excellent and affordable wines from Chile starting with our Tour of Chile Part 1 series on Carmenere and followed by our Tour of Chile Part 2 series on Coastal Whites. In the latter series we uncovered Chile as a great region for Sauvignon Blanc and we affirm that discovery again with today’s wine.
The 2011 TerraNoble Central Valley Chile Sauvignon Blanc begins with a slightly musty aroma of melon, peach and tropical fruit along with perhaps a whiff of grassiness. The wine tastes nice and fresh with clean and zesty fruit flavors of lemon and tropical fruit and features good acidity. It ends with more zesty citrus and has great length. A very nice all-around wine that is quite flexible, which makes this a fabulous find for only $6!
Overall Rating: 7.8
