This wine is quite pale in color, grassy on the nose. On the mid pallet are some green pineapple with lots of zest going on. I might even get some grapefruit. On the finish the wine is on the medium side where the tartness lives on. For me this is not a great wine. I’ve had much better Chilean Sauv Blancs. I would give this an 87-88 or so. It did improve a little when it warmed up, but still not great.

Oh, by the way, can someone tell me what a green peach tastes like, and perhaps why you would eat one? Sometimes Gord and I are on different pages …

From the LCBO web site:
CASA LAPOSTOLLE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2009 Rapel Valley TASTING NOTE: This entry-level Casa Lapostolle is reliably good year after year. A nose of fig, grapefruit, lime zest and nettles is classic sauvignon. The flavours deliver pineapple, lime, and zingy green peach freshness with toned down acidity. Score – 89. (Gordon Stimmell, The Toronto Star, Oct. 31, 2009) 396994 (D) 750 mL $ 13.95
