$3.99 Sauvignon Blanc @ Grocery Outlet (Salinas)

Melanie Wong | May 9, 200501:41 AM

I swung by Grocery Outlet to get a bottle of inexpensive, dry white wine to simmer in a double recipe of Hazan's bolognese sauce. The 2003 Caliterra Valle Central Sauvignon Blanc from Chile, regularly around $9, seemed to be a good candidate at $3.99. After letting it chill for a bit, I was impressed with the quality for the price. Chilean SB's often have a soapy and flabby profile. This one is crisp and bright, even a year after release, with a nice mix of floral, tropical and grassy aromas and flavors. It shows the green, herbal and citrusy side of the grape, ending with a clean refreshing finish. Pick up a few bottles if you can find it at this price to enjoy with shellfish and picnics this summer.
