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.
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.
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.
