2008 La Fortuna Sauvignon Blanc

This 2008 Chilean Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Lontue River valley in Curico in the middle of the country (both north-south and east-west).  This is the first SB I've had that's made from organically grapes; I think I picked it up at Whole Foods but forgot to jot down the price.



This bottle had more nose than the last 2 or 3 SBs that I've tried.  Generally herbally, no asparagus or cat pee jumped out at me.

The flavor was very nice.  Slightly more acidic than recent SBs but not overwhelming.  Very fruity; I think I finally caught the melon tones that so many tasting notes mention.

A gook choice for a summertime SB.  I liked it.
