2008 Botalcura Sauvignon Blanc La Porfia Grand Reserve, Casablanca Valley, Chile
This is a very pleasant Sauvignon Blanc. It is neither overblown with oak nor starkly acidic and reeking of cat urine. Rather, it has grassy flavors with white grapefruit and just a tiny background hint of gooseberry. It has a smooth glycerin mouth-feel and food-friendly acids.
