Vistamar Brisa Sauvignon Blanc 2012


Everyone's making sauvignon blanc these days.  From Chile's Central Valley, this budget priced sauvignon blanc resembles neither an offering from New Zealand nor France.  Sui generis perhaps.  It presents strangely enough almost like an off dry riesling.  Its aromatics remind of lemon and lime, with lifted floral notes.  The palate tastes off dry and has balanced lemon and lime flavours.  This is super easy to drink, and I think the sugar/acid balance works.  I didn't see the residual sugar levels for this vintage, but the 2013 vintage has 5g/l; enough to be perceptible.
