Santa Ema Amplus 2009 Sauvignon Blanc

Price: Around $11

Color: Pale yellow with greenish hues

Nose: Tropical with green apples and pears, nice bouquet

Taste: Its got a good acidic twang to it.  Good roundness and crispness. Nice citrus fruit flavor.

Summary: You’ve gotta pair this wine with the right food.  I had it with spicy Indian, and it was GREAT!  So good it warranted the use of all capital letters.

The curry and spiciness of the dish was well complemented by the Amplus.  It’s refreshing character also helped in taming the dish’s heat factor.

This wine would go great with some spicy scallops over pasta or rice!
