White Wine

Concha Y Toro Trio Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Casablanca, Rapel, LimarĂ­ Valleys, Chile: Classic Chilean Sauvignon Blanc with refreshing herbal and grassy aromas. Terrific mouth-watering acidity for food, from shellfish to vegetarian dishes. Clean and crisp.

Racy and vibrant: drink it while watching action-thriller movies. Pair with: chicken, pork tenderloin, pasta, soup, salad. Drink: 2012-2014. 649129 13.40% XD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 89/100.
