Now that we are into the local asparagus season it’s time to think of its natural wine partner ““ Sauvignon Blanc. And maybe Chile, the current champion of “˜best value’ with this wine
Caliterra delivers frank flavor and refreshment. At an appealing price. Not terribly Sauvignon ““ more really good basic dry white. Think citrussy edition of Pinot Grigio. Hard to imagine a better Summer bottle for the fridge door.
Santa Carolina’s wine is more typical Sauvignon ““ herbs and citrus, almost tingling minerality, and the vitality and exuberance we associate with the colour lime green. A great edition of SB, and several dollars cheaped than the Kiwi bottles.~
