Top 10 wines in the US press

Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc 2013, Chile

qw044hThe Augusta Chronicle‘s Dennis Sodomka recommends a wine that appeared in last weeks round-up, no doubt because of its association with a certain annual event happening at the end of October…

Praising the value of the wine, he writes: “It is difficult to find wine this good at such a low price.”

Describing the wine, it has a “beautiful straw colour with green highlights” and on the nose it displays “strong aromas of citrus and peaches pour out of the glass, leading to an explosion of flavours on the palate.”

Next, on the palate, Sodomka says: “It is elegant, round, balanced and loaded with grapefruit and grapefruit peel flavours. Some Sauvignon Blancs overdo the grapefruit, but in the Casillero del Diablo the flavours are mellower. It has a smooth mouthfeel and a nice balance of crisp acidity.”
