Chilean Sauvignon Blanc

Chile is known for making some of the most popular Sauvignon Blancs in the world. The wines are light, refreshing, citrusy and enjoyable.

Often more affordable, Chilean Sauvignon Blancs are not as pungent as New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, and a little fruitier than French Sancerre, also made from this grape.

Sauvignon Blanc can have a wide range of flavors, but it is know for its green flavors, which some people love and some other hate. These flavors can be like freshly cut grass, green peppers or herbs.

The Sauvignon Blancs from Chile do not have as many of those green flavors and instead are more citrus forward. You are more likely to have a wine that is filled with delicious grapefruit, passion fruit or lime flavors. The wines are typically simple, but enjoyable.

Look for Sauvignon Blancs from the Aconcagua Valley or the Casablanca Valley for some really good examples.
