Tis the Green Season

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. 

CALITERRA 14 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva, Chile 275909 $9.95

SANTA CAROLINA 14 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva, Chile 337535 $11.95
