Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Pale straw colors and a crip nose match flavors of citrus fruit, most notably grapefruit, perfectly. Also featuring lime, nectarine, and hints of peach flavoring. A very light white wine.
Recommendation: I first came across Terra Andina Sauvignon Blanc while at the Seafire Grill in Richmond, Virginia (which is where I live). I instanly fell in love with the crisp flavors, especially the prevelance of grapefruit, which I don’t enjoy by itself. Searching for the wine at my local shops turned up nothing until this past week when I stopped into Private Stock Cigar & Wine. There it was, the wine I had been searching for for the better part of 2 years. Purchased and taken home, it didn’t take long until my wife and I enjoyed it on our deck.
While I normally try to pair wine with food, we’re getting into the time of year where I like to just sit out on my deck and enjoy a glass of white wine. The Sauvignon Blanc from Terra Andina is perfect for that. Light and crisp, it’s still full of flavors and not at all sweet. The citrus fruit flavors are the perfect for enjoying on a hot summer day, or for pairing with any number of meals from pork, to chicken, and even seafood. For the price, this is easily one of my favorite whites, and if you happen to find a bottle of it, I would highly recommend grabbing it, especially as the temperature continues to rise.
