Undurraga Aliwen Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2008

by Nannette Eaton on February 21, 2010

“Love is the greatest refreshment in life.”  — Pablo Picasso

Perhaps.  But the Aliwen Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is a refreshment itself and the Wine Harlots are kinda loving it.   It has a muted sweet floral aroma, with a crisp acidity with citrus and grassy notes predominating.  The perfect pairing is Spaghetti with Pecorino Romano & Black Pepper.  Simple and delicious.

The details: 13% alcohol.  Our sample was under cork closure, but it appears the wine is also packaged with a screw-top.  Appellation: Curíco Valley, Chile.  Actual retail $12-15 USD depending on your jurisdiction.  Imported by the Masciarelli Wine Company.  This was a media sample generously provided by the Wines of Chile.

The music match is “Once In A Lifetime” from the Talking Heads from the album Remain in the Light. Same as it ever was…
