From: Rapel Valley, Chile
Serve with: Smoked salmon, shellfish
This is a very subtle sauvignon blanc, with little of the pronounced grassy flavor found in many California versions. It's a deliciously smoky white wine — hence the perfect pairing with the salmon — and a light herbal quality that adds flavor interest without dominating the wine. It's a well-rounded, fresh wine with hints of lime, mint, figs and kiwi fruit. There's a lot of complexity here for a relatively inexpensive wine.
