2006 Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc

Concha y Toro's Casillero del Diablo line of wines includes some very fine values, including this evening's Sauvignon Blanc. On this site you will also find reviews of the Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon, and A over at Wine in the Peg has reviewed the Malbec.

The 2006 Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc was a pale straw yellow colour, and exhibited attractive melon and citrusy aromas (grapefruit, lemon peel), with some of that trademark Sauv. Blanc 'pis de chat'. On the palate this wine was well balanced, with a nice soft texture counterbalanced by crisp, food friendly acidity. A perfect appertif, patio quaffer, or serious pairing for a simple seafood dish. I have to slap a "Great Value" on this baby.
Score: 15/20
Price: C$10.95 (LCBO)
Great Value!
