Palo Alto 2009 Reserva Sauvignon Blanc - 86pts

Palo Alto 2009 Reserva Sauvignon Blanc (Maule Valley) Chile

Availability: Private wine shops
Cost: $12-16
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: January 19th, 2011

Tasting Notes: Rich and round, this Sauvignon Blanc from Chile's Maule Valley offers a change of pace from ultra-tart New Zealand examples. Grapefruit, pineapple, pear and mineral characters manifest as potent flavours on the slightly off-dry palate and as delicate aromas on the subtle nose. Good acidity balances the powerful fruit. Drink 2011-2013.
