bosqueViña Casas del Bosque Casablanca Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Fact: Last week, we recommended another Chilean Sauvignon Blanc from 2008. This week, we found another just as good, if not even better. A classic nose of lemon peel, citrus juice and passion fruit leads to a bracing jolt of acid that tingles the tongue. Lemon, a little grapefruit and gooseberry sweep through the mouth, cleansing the palate, leading to a clean, bright finish.

Serve it icy cold or just chilled and discover a wealth of tangy flavors and aromas at either level. It sells for about $10 a bottle.

Feeling: In the summer, Sauvignon Blanc rules, and this exciting bottling offers enough oomph to stand up to the heat. From the first sip, I felt transported back to the vineyard, where I shared a memorable lunch last spring.

Pair it with a shrimp salad coated in a mayo/sour cream dressing and watch it cut through the richness of the food.

What other treasures does this vintage from Chile have to offer?

    That is a great wine. Had the previous vintage, very good, but the ’08 is stellar! Good review.
