Casa Silva “Cool Coast” Sauvignon Blanc 2011
I am a fan of Casa Silva wines and this offering from their Paredones Estate in Colchagua Valley centra Chile is a winner.
The nose is bracing fresh sea air, with shards of green pepper green gage plum & spicy minerals.
Palate is super green, leafy, more green pepper tinged with fresh citrus. There was a hint of vegetal character but didn’t find it unpleasant. Nice taught acidity and a smoky green asparagus finish.
If you are tired of NZ Sauv Blanc or want a classy alternative to Sancerre then do seek this out.
