Santa Rita 120 Lontue Valley (Chile) Sauvignon Blanc, 2008

Someone else brought a bottle of this to a dinner party, and I liked it well enough to go out and buy a few for myself. It is a very enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc that sells for about $7.

I like the smell of passion fruit in a Sauvignon Blanc, and this wine is gushing with it. I also smell and taste melon, mint, grapefruit, peaches--all very fresh and ventilating. The wine has a high-acid zing but does not taste tart as some Anjou Sauvignons do. Nor does it taste sweet. It has the perfect balance, perfect cut for enjoyable spring and summer drinking.
