2012 Viña Santa Rita Reserva Sauvignon Blanc

This has a hugely grassy nose, with a background of sweet lemon and honeydew. The palate mirrors the nose, with big grassy flavor, some gooseberry, then sweet/tart citrus and melon. Toward the finish it adds a touch of toast. It is a pleasant wine with a lot going on for a very reasonable price. Drink with New England Clam Chowder. Recommended (88).
