White Wine Named Top Wine from Chile
Most of us think red when we think Chilean wine, but a sauvignon blanc has taken home the top prize in the 2007 Wines of Chile Awards.
Casas del Bosque's Sauvignon Blanc 2006 from the Casablanca Valley took the Best in Show prize. It's the first time in the four year history of the awards that a white has earned the top prize. It beat out 400 wines entered in the competition.
The judges named Miguel Torres Santa Digna Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2006 as the Best Value White and Montgras Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 as the Best Value Red in the competition.
