And again

You’d be drinking Sauvignon Blanc like it was going out of style too if you were living in 99+ degree weather with 100% humidity. It’s rough to sleep, even with AC going full blast because it’s still hot, so don’t deny me my Sauvignon Blanc…if I can’t sleep well, I might as well enjoy a glass of wine!

The wine was a 2006 Anakena Sauvignon Blanc from the Central Coast of Chile. It was 13% alcohol and cost me $6.50 at Total Wine. I’ve been digging the Sauvignon Blancs from Chile lately, but sadly, this was not my favorite bottle so far. I was a bit disappointed as a fellow shopper told me it was fabulous, and the store recommended it as a top pick. I think my expectations were too high!

The nose displayed tropical fruit and green apples. It smelled tart. In the mouth there were lemons and white grapefruit. It had racing, mouth-puckering acidity and was very refreshing. However, the acidity was too much for me! I love the tart wines, but I don’t want to feel like I’ve been eating a bag of sour candy for an hour after I’ve had a glass of wine.
