William Cole 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Chile

88 POINTS! - Steven Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar. Produced by William Cole and his family, the Albamar 2011 Sauvignon Blanc comes from Chile’s prestigious Casablanca Valley (often called ‘Chile’s Burgundy’). Albamar pays homage to the valley’s foggy mornings (alba means sunrise) and the cooling breezes of the ocean (mar means ocean). This coastal vineyard produces fruit with excellent acidity and fresh fruit flavors. This 2011 Sauvignon Blanc plays with refreshing flavors of meyer lemon and crisp apple. It’s wonderful balance and dry finish make it a very food friendly wine! The prior vintage received 90 POINTS from Wine & Spirits and was named a ‘Best Buy.’ [+]
