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.
Lapostolle is the property of the French family Marnier Lapostolle and was founded in 1994 by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle along with her husband Cyril de Bournet. Today Lapostolle owns 380 hectares of vineyards.
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
Solid, with lemon peel, straw, peach and grapefruit flavors, and nice richness on the finish, supported by the grape's typically crisp acidity. Drink now.
A crisp, dry Sauvignon Blanc that makes an excellent food wine. Its flavors of pineapple, figs, and grapefruit are accompanied by loads of minerality; even without food you'll soon be reaching for a second glass.
Perhaps the finest Sauvignon Blanc from South America, this Chilean white has honeyed melon and ripe fig flavors. The herbaceous quality of this varietal is very muted, mingled with a subtle mineral quality. It is superb with shellfish or simply on its own.
