Vintages Wine Picks July 19, 2008

White Wine

Casa Silva Quinta Generacion Viognier Sauvignon Gris Chardonnay 2004, Colchagua Valley, Chile: Vintages Wine Panel: This proprietary blend is comprised of 40% Viognier, 40% Sauvignon Gris and 20% Chardonnay. Sauvignon Gris is a somewhat rare mutated variant of Sauvignon Blanc that has a pink skin and produces a fuller-bodied wine than its famous relative. My note: A quirky, off-beat white. Pair with: grilled prawns, cedar planked salmon, asian dishes. 59444 13.50% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 87/100. July 19, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
