CONCHA Y TORO CASILLERO DEL DIABLO SAUVIGNON BLANC RESERVE - 2008
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc in Central Valley, Chile. 13.1% alcohol.
Pale yellow color with a very aromatic nose of citrus. On the palate there's a blend of peach, grapefruit, and gooseberry. Crisp, clean, round with vibrant acidity on the back-end. Very good mouthfeel and weight with hints of honey on the finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
When it comes to Sauvignon Blanc, Chile is far from the first place I turn. I instantly think of New Zealand, California or French Sancerre, but I think I may be overlooking some real potential. This white is simple, solid and delicious. A real find for a highly competitive suggested retail of $12 a bottle which means you can probably find it for about $10.
