2018 Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon (Calcu, Vinedos)
Calcu, Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon, Colchagua Valley, Chile 201870% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon PINEAPPLE & JUICY CITRUS, RIPE & TROPICAL, VIBRANT & WHOLESOME Chilean Sauvignon Blanc has increasingly become one of the most sought-after specialties of South America and frequently acts as a counterpoint to the lean, razory offerings associated with New Zealand's Marlborough. These often distinctly more tropical renditions owe their character to a warmer, drier climate. Representing this style very well and reminiscent of the juicy, full-figured Sauvignon Blancs of California (particularly those of Napa Valley), this denizen of the Andes' foothills leaps aromatically from the glass with bold, citrusy bravado. Serving Suggestions: Mussels w/ garlic, butter, & lemon. Tomato, orange, and cucumber salad w/ scallions, corn, coriander,chives.
