Casa Lapostolle Sauvignon Blanc Rapel Valley 2016

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Not a bad sauvignon blanc from Chile. More citrus than grapefruit, some minerality, slightly spicy with a decent finish.

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

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.

Light-weight, with open-knit lemon zest and straw notes. Citrusy finish. Drink now.

A piercing grapefruit aroma, the hallmark of Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc, is strong here, and there's a certain stony peachiness and some passion fruit as well. There's also a touch of green pepper and asparagus at the flavor core, and then some vanilla at the end. If that sounds like a lots to ponder, it is - probably too much, given the wine.

Cool lemon rind, spice and fresh herb aromas. Supple, creamy, ripe and satisfying...
