Wine & SpiritsIf 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.
