Wine of the Week for December 3, 2007

Concha y Toro "Trio" Sauvignon Blanc 2005 - $ 12.95
Style: W2

What I like at Sauvignon is its ability to adapt and even excel in a variety of terroirs. Here we have a medium platinum-straw coloured wine that is loaded lush gooseberries and crushed leaves on the nose with just a touch of crabapple. Tangy orange peel leads off on the palate, with a crisp and refreshing acidity closing with tangy lemon. Very good, fleshy, and with good length. An excellent example of typicity that will go well with any kind of bird or fish, although I would go with stuffed peppers. (LCBO 678656)
