The top finishing Sauvignon Blanc in our blind white wine tasting. We found this friendly and pleasing with notes of grapefruit, apple, tangerine, boxwood and lime peel. A very nice everyday Sauvignon Blanc.

Light yellow. Apple, pear and baking spices on the nose, with a light floral quality adding complexity. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors show moderate concentration and finish a touch dry. Offers easy, straightforward appeal.

Los Vascos is fast becoming the leader in value-priced Sauvignon Blanc from the Casablanca Valley. This is the winery's best effort to date, and it delivers a champion's blast of green apple and citrus aromas. The palate is lively as can be, and it houses fine but also defined lemon and lime flavors. Refreshing as a walk under a cascade; clean and scouring.

The nose shows the traditional "wild" and expressive aromas of Sauvignon Blanc: boxwood and shrub followed by notes of chives and fruit such as pineapple, lime, green apple and white peach. The mouth is fresh, juicy and balanced. Good persistence. The grapes from Casablanca and Leyda bring in a fruity and mineral touch, while those from the Andean foothills contribute with volume and a creamy texture.

Crisp, with lime, chalk and sweet pea notes backed by a steely finish. Drink now. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

If I asked you where great Sauvignon Blanc comes from, what would be your answer? What about Chile? Not your first choice? I'll admit that I'm often guilty of forgetting that great, attractively priced Sauvignon Blanc often comes from Chile. It's easy to forget when wines from Marlborough and Sancerre get all of the hype and press. The famous Lafite-Rothschild winemaking family has made great strides with their Chilean wines in recent years, and it is quickly apparent in this fresh and very lively wine. The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc has concentrated flavors and aromas of fresh pineapple and Granny Smith apple, and hints of lemon pepper and wet stones. Here's a hint: don't serve it quite so cold, as you'll miss out on some of those nuances.

A delicious blend of herbal and citrus flavors, this wine has robust acidity and a touch of minerality. Itandrsquo;s a refreshing and juicy sauvignon, ideal for an aperitif.
