Caliterra Sauvignon Blanc 2008

I tried this one last week. The description from Winecurrent.com is pretty accurate. The Bouquet is spot on a classic New Zealand Sauv Blanc. On the pallatte the wine has terrif flavors although it has some slight “greenness” and acidity on the finish. For the price this wine is a bargain. This is not a Kim Crawford (which I consider the benchmark Sauv Blanc) but neither is the price, this one is half!

I recommend you grab a few of these for sure.

Casablanca $10.95 (Check LCBO stock )
Close your eyes and this might be a high-quality SB from Marlborough delivering aromas of nettles, gooseberry and grassy notes. The flavours attack the palate with gusto; there’s ripe sweet tropical fruit—pineapple, melon and mango—that’s deftly balanced with a steady stream of bracing citrus acidity. This single-vineyard gem finishes racy and ready to be served alongside salt and pepper calamari rings or spicy prawn kebabs. This is very good value, indeed. (VH) winecurrent.com
