At a recent Wines of Chile wine's blogger tasting, I had a chance to sip the 2011 Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc - a good wine at a good price. This is a single vineyard white wine that starts with straw-yellow hues in the glass and quickly mixes things up with plenty of green Granny Smith apple, tangy citrus components and a touch of florality on the nose.
The palate profile reveals more zesty citrus fruit wrapped up in bracing acidity, a decent dose of minerality and solid balance. This Chilean white wine wraps up with a classic dry, fairly crisp finish. A perfect pairing partner for shellfish, roasted poultry, veggie-driven fare and softer cheese options.
