Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Chile - $10

Wine & Spirits rated this Chilean Sauvignon Blanc 90 points. I tasted it this afternoon at Whole Foods, where it was priced at $10.

Aroma - tropical fruit
Taste - light, crisp, refreshing

I purchased a bottle to pair with seafood.

Update - February 5, 2010
We brought this wine to share at J&J's Night of Amazing Thai Food because I thought that the crispness of the wine would pair nicely with seafood and Thai spices. This wine did not disappoint! We enjoyed it with the Goong Sarong (crispy marinated shrimp with sweet dipping sauce), Tom Yam Goong (spicy and sour soup with shrimp), Plaa Thawt Sahm Rot (deep-fried fish with three-flavored sauce), and Khao Phat (fried rice), and it went very nicely with each dish! I also had some at the end of the evening with the fabulous coconut ice cream and wafers. What a wonderful evening of food, wine, and best of all, friends!
