Viña Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc San Antonio Valley Organic 2010
Tasted with 3 other S.B. that cost slightly more - Geyser Peak, Ch. Ste Michelle- nice nose - little fruit. Crisp and bright with citrus notes. Preferred this to the others at $8.
Lovely with seafood. A well balanced white with a nice citrus bite
External Reviews for Viña Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc San Antonio Valley Organic
Bright and refreshing, this sauvignon offers juicy flavors of lime and pineapple enhanced by generous acidity. Pour it with sushi.
Light straw. Spicy lime and pink grapefruit aromas are complicated by white flowers and quinine. Firm and juicy, with deep citrus and pear skin flavors, light body and a brisk finish. Clean, vibrant and very easy to drink.
Open-knit aromas of apple, pear, green melon and mineral are perfectly good, while the palate is high in acid and kick. Flavors of grapefruit, generic citrus and grass are solid, as is the finish, which keeps its line. A snappy, alert, easygoing wine.
Light but focused, showing gooseberry and sweet pea notes, with a modest finish. Drink now.

So you're invited to a friend's house for dinner. You are not sure what they are preparing, but you want to bring a nice bottle of wine that would go well with a hot summer day. You stop at your local Premier Group store (three locations to choose from), where a very knowledgeable wine associate recommends this wonderful Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Expecting to pay much more for a bottle of this quality, you are surprised to see it for under ten. It's a good thing you bring two of them because it is a hit at the dinner party. Everyone was so impressed with your selection they all assume when it comes to wine, you are a Cono Sur!
Bright straw. Green apple, lime and lemongrass on the nose, plus a light quinine nuance. Tangy and precise if not particularly complex, featuring good firm acidity providing definition and shape to the brisk citrus flavors. Closes on a brisk, dry no... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
