Summary: Its starting to feel like summer here in southern California and I’ve been having a blast with several Chilean sauvignon blancs. I tasted two this past weekend that were superb. The Aliwen I brought back from Chile and its a great value. I’m not sure where to pick it up in the US but if you see it for less than $10, don’t hesitate. Its a great crispy sauvignon blanc that goes great with cheeses and other appetizers.
By the way, if you’ve recently tasted a Chilean wine, I’d love to know your thoughts on it. Good, bad, or indifferent, its great information to have! Share your thoughts here.
