Wise Wine Review:
Asunto de Vino Central Valley Chile Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Cost Score = 9/10 Points
Taste Score = 8.5/10 Points
Enjoyability Score = 9/10 Points (Additional stats below)


Asunto De Vino�s Sauvignon Blanc, named for the Latin phrase for "an affair with wine,� offers an affair every wine lover can proudly enjoy.

In the glass it shines like the sun proudly presenting its golden yellow luminescence. One whiff reveals a bouquet of sweet pink grapefruit. Its tropical olfactory tune conjures blissful memories of my Anniversary vacation in Jamaica.

I can almost hear the steel drums ringing.

This full and fruity Sauvignon Blanc balances its way across the tongue fading slowly with a clean dry finish. A final tangy goodbye kiss remains as a souvenir after every taste of this delightfully refreshing summer wine.

Vintage Info:
�Expressive and aromatic on the nose with herbaceous overtones and something of tropical and citrus fruit. In the mouth the herbaceous dominates, it has a balanced acidity and is rich and silky, of medium body and good persistence. An easy drinking wine designed for immediate enjoyment and will also age for several years." �Asunto De Vino




Affair with the Wine Whore


Recommended Food Pairing:
Winery's Suggestion- "This crisp fresh dry wine can be drunk on its own or enjoyed with most seafood, or light dishes."

My Suggestion- After a tiresome shift of the daily grind, I tasted this wine alongside a casual but juicy BBQ chicken complimented by sides of coleslaw and macaroni salad. This Sauvignon Blanc requires no blanket of food to disguise its palate. Enjoy with a light entr�e or nothing at all so you can experience this wine without any distractions.

You'll want to solely savor every drop.
