Happy Hour: Montes Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2008

While some women prefer to drink red wine, in the springtime I constantly crave a chilled glass of my favorite white wine, Sauvignon Blanc. Last weekend I enjoyed an incredibly refreshing offering from Chilean winery Montes. With its crisp, bright flavor, peachy aroma, and grassy undertones, I was thoroughly impressed with the limited selection Sauvignon Blanc ($12). Although it's wonderfully easy to drink and affordable, this wine doesn't lack complexity or character. It's slightly minerally with a lovely acidity and smooth, lasting finish — basically everything you want in a Sauvignon Blanc. It paired perfectly with homemade shrimp pesto pizza, but the flavor is so fresh, this wine would be delightful on its own. Has anyone else sipped Montes?

Montes is a great vineyard. They have some really delicious wines! I was living in Chile last year and got a chance to tour the vineyard with my mom and a friend. It is really incredible. One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Worth a visit!

I meant to write: I'll try this at the store next time (meaning the wine that yum suggested) I'm sorry sugar members, I shouldn't drink and type!
