35° South 2010 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

This is a value wine from Chile. Green Dragon loves Sauvignon Blanc, especially from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. She decided to explore new terrain and picked this bottle up for some casual evening sipping.
The name of the wine company alludes to the latitude of 35° South where the vineyards are located. 35° South is one of the labels of Vina San Pedro, which has been making wine in Chile for 150 years. San Pedro has some high end brands, but also produces Gato Negro, which is absolutely awful.
The grapes come from the Curicó and Elqui valleys, which is said to balance the fruitiness with minerality. The wine is aged In stainless steel tanks. Grapefruit and tropical fruit dominate this wine, but it is a pale shadow of a good, crisp Sauvignon Blanc. At $9 per bottle,what did you expect?
Chase the moths from your wallet and upgrade to a nicer Sauvignon Blanc! Rated *+ of *****.
