Casillero del Diablo Whites

As a fan of Concha y Toro and a lover of white wine, I was excited to get some tasting samples of the Casillero del Diablo whites.

Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay

The 2011 Chardonnay was a nice accompaniment to homemade sweet potato/black eyed peas/walnut empanadas. Starfruit and melon aromas, lemony gooseberry flavors, creamy mouthfeel, luxuriant finish made this a pleasure to drink.

Casillero del Diablo Sauvignon Blanc

How good was the 2012 Reserva Sauvignon Blanc? With citrus and melon on nose, tart lemon into honeydew tastes, nice acidity, rounder mouthfeel, and a smooth though short finish, Laima (who usually prefers reds) finished the bottle!

Priced under $10, the Quality Price Ratio of these wines is out of this world, in my opinion.
