Brilliant on the palate, and brilliant in the glass!
Another great value Chilean wine!
Best Bet's Friday Night Vino
Caliterra Reserva, Sauvignon Blanc
Price: approx $14
Andy & Tj tasting notes: Brilliant yellow/green in the glass, and equally as bright on the nose and palate! Just another shining example of a great wine at a great price from this well-known Chilean white wine region(Casablanca). New Zealand is often heralded as the leader in quality SB production, however, this wine could pass as a higher priced New Zealand wine quite easily...lots of grassy, lime zest & green pepper on the nose, and a mouth watering 'zing' on the palate with dry notes of gooseberry, limes and minerals. Characteristics often associated to New Zealand's lengendary Marlborough region. We paired this with Buttermilk/Dijon Pork Tenderloin and Risotto Milanese, but this is a wonderful patio sipper too.

Metro Liquor's Wine Guru Jim Martin's notes: A delicious, great value wine, the Caliterra Sauv Blanc is loaded with fresh grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, gooseberry and kiwi with mouth-watering, zingy, crisp acidity and clean fresh fruit flavour. The palate is crisp, attractive and easy drinking with lots of tropical and orchard fruit flavours. A great accompaniment to seafood or as an aperitif.
Winery tasting notes: Brilliant, light greenish-yellow in color. Pronounced notes of citrus fruit and minerals stand out on the nose, accompanied by interesting notes of chili pepper and tomato leaves. Intensely aromatic on the palate with bright acidity that makes this a fresh wine that is pleasing to drink
