Frontera Sauvignon Blanc 2007

here is an inexpensive white from chile that i had with a spicy curry chicken dinner. the nose is peaches and citrus. the palate was citrus, and not the big grapefruit flavor you get from New Zealand Sauv Blancs. i also got melon flavors and a nice crisp finish. for a price around $8, this was a nice surprise. it complemented the meal really well, bringing out some spice notes in the wine. i will have to remember this one later this year when the warm weather returns and sitting on the deck to enjoy a crisp white is in the plans.
