Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc 2002

Made by Joseba Altuna in Chile's Casablanca valley I had high hopes for this - despite Sainsbury's discontinuing it! However despite looking the part (straw with a touch of green) and having aromas of gooseberries and apricots, once in the mouth it sadly failed to deliver - it wasn't a bad wine, it just wasn't very good either - it was a touch too tart for my liking and tasted sour which was a great shame - however that is life and sometimes things taste good and sometimes they don't!

I would recommend the 2003 Vina Casablanca, Sauvignon Blanc, sweet lime and gooseberry flavours, crisp and fresh. £4.99 Morrisons. IWC Gold winner in '04.
