Although you can’t tell it from my posts on this blog, I’ve been drinking mostly reds for weeks now. Perhaps it would help if I were better about getting my posts up in a timely manner. Then you might know I’ve been enjoying reds of late. And that is one of my New Year’s resolutions – to be more diligent about posting my wine experiences here. Not doing too well so far, but there is time (and room) for improvement. Ha!
Anyway, I was in the store the other day browsing and found myself drawn to the white wine shelves. I even commented to the staff that I seemed to have a hankering for a white wine despite the chilly weather and piles of snow hanging around. Having given voice to my thoughts, I decided to take action.
Varietal: Sauvignion Blanc
Appellation: Curicó Valley, Chile
Price: $9.99 at Whole Foods
Notes: This Chilean Sauvignon Blanc was light-bodied and a light yellow in the glass. On the nose I found plenty of citrus and a touch of pear. Flavors basically mirrored the bouquet with the addition of warm spice notes. Acidity was fairly bright, and alcohol was at 13%. Quite pleasant overall.
