Entrada Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Argentina
Cost: $7.50

Crisp and refreshing with aromas of sweet citrus and spicy chives.  Grapefruit and peaches on the palate with a hint of mineral on the finish.  Pairs well with seafood, white meat, hors d’oeuvres.

Recommendations: While restocking our wine cellar, my wife and I decided to pick up a different Sauvignon Blanc than our usual Root:1 we were both caught by the description of the Entrada with its mentions of spicy chives. After sitting in our fridge for a few days, we paired it with a meal of chicken and green beans.

The aroma of spicy chive was fleeting, but I very much enjoyed the flavors of grapefruit and peach, which were much more subtle than what I usually get from either Root:1 or Terra Andina.  We seasoned our chicken with a decent bit of spice, so the crispness of the wine was a nice counter note to the food.

For the price I’d be hard pressed to not recommend this wine.  While Root:1 will remain my favorite Sauvignon Blanc (at least for now), for less than $10 this is a great wine to pick up and will certainly be finding its way back into my cellar as we slowly move into the warmer months and I’m looking for wines to drink on my deck.
