2013 Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc, Chile

Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc Chile 2013On a search for summer dry whites, Sandra Silfven took a tour of Concha y Toro’s wine portfolio, writing in the Detroit News this week, Chile’s leading wine producer and largest exporter of Latin American wines.

She said: “Casillero del Diablo — cellar of the devil — is a dependable, value-priced line from Concha y Toro. The name came about more than 100 years ago when founder Don Melchor de Concha y Toro decided to scare off thieves raiding his wine cellars by spreading the rumor they were haunted. This Sauvignon Blanc is textbook for Chile — a pale straw-gold color; dry, crisp aromas; and flavors of herbs, gooseberry, grapefruit and pear. The tart, dry style is not for amateur palates — it suits wine geeks, especially the ones on a budget. It’s an ideal summer wine for entrée salads and seafood.”

Price: $11
