Friday Wine Tasting...

Wine of the Week *
Alto Tierruca Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2008

This wine is delightful! A great addition to my Friday wine collection and perfect for a warm spring or summer evening. With all the attention that the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs from Marlborough get, it’s easy to overlook the terrific values that can come out of Chile.

Tasting Notes: The Alto Tierruca has terrific intensity of flavor with juicy citrus, white peach and kiwi without the overtly grassy and herbal elements that sometimes come with New World Sauvignon Blanc. (via Westside Wines)

*To order this wine call or visit Country Roads (Marlborough, CT)
