Not a bad sauvignon blanc from Chile. More citrus than grapefruit, some minerality, slightly spicy with a decent finish.
Dry with citrus flavors.
Crisp and clean, good value, my go to summer wine.
Pale color. Inviting bouquet on the nose. Hints of apple, peach, apricot, melon herbs and minerals, but a tad sour. Highly acidic. Light body. Just fair for me. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10
Notes of kiwi and lime on the nose and palate (had just a taste at the tasting)
Good young cab
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Sauvignon Blanc
The Sauvignon Blanc is bright and attractive light yellow with hints of straw and green. An expressive nose of fresh citrus fruit on entry, followed by sweet hints of white flowers and delicate notes of lychee and fig. In the mouth its young and pleasant, with fresh acidity followed by a delicate sweetness and abundant citrus aromas that persist in the palate. Light and elegant.
Helles Gelb mit hellgrünen Reflexen. Reichhaltiges Bouquet mit Aromen von Zitrusfrüchten, weissen Früchten sowie Nektarinen mit Noten von Lychee. Ein Wein mit erfrischendem und vollem Geschmack und feiner Mineralität.

"Casa Lapostolle Sauvignon blanc 2010 is of delicate light yellow color with lime green hints.It is expressive and has fresh nose with sweet citrus fruit
Spices and minerals can be discerned in the aromatics of the 2001 Sauvignon Blanc. Light to medium-bodied and revealing appealing white fruit flavors, this well-made wine has good grip and a refreshing character. Drink it over the next 12 months.
Tasty, with pink grapefruit, lemon zest and straw notes and a lively finish. Drink now.
Light yellow. Smoky pear and orange aromas are brightened by dusty minerals and lemon zest. Deeper mango and pineapple on the palate, with tart citrus pith qualities carrying through the persistent, brisk finish.
