Day 140 Drink: William Cole Columbine Special Reserve 2009 Sauvignon Blanc
William Cole Vineyards is located in Chile’s Casablanca Valley. The vineyard is located near the coast and the winery specializes in cool climate varieties.
William Cole Columbine Special Reserve 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is the kind of $15 a bottle summer sipper that most palates willingly embrace. A floral and slight citrus aroma that opens with with a tropical fruit tartness. As the flavor evolves hints of peaches and green apples emerge. Nothing heavy here. It can certainly match up well with chicken or fish.
