CHILE IS THE NEW BOSS OF SAUVIGNON BLANC
France invented it, New Zealand popularized it, but Chile is the new champ when it comes to value-priced Sauvignon Blanc. Just about every winery makes a good edition, and generally speaking they bring everyday drinkability to what used to be a ‘challenging’ wine. Without robbing the grape of its distinctive personality.
Errazuriz wine may be the most crowd-pleasing Sauvignon on the planet. The grapes herbaceous flavours and nervy zest are delivered in a fun, friendly style. Shades of lemonade in its gulpability. No kidding, this is a yummy drink. Summer refreshment at its best. A MUST for the fridge door. Great party starter. Great wine buy.
Emiliana’s organic edition combines the super-refreshing nature of the grape, with with a yeasty/earthy flavor. A little different.
