Bodegas Carrau Sauvignon Blanc “Sur Lie” 2005

Tasted blind, thought it was a European light white, not unlike pinot grigio. Very light in palate, loads of tropical fruit, even pineapple. Very short palate. Turned out to be a Chilean sauvignon that’s been left on the lees for six months. Can only imagine the lack-lustre juice that it began as.

  1. I have just (16-11-08) tasted this excellent wine. However it is not from Chile but from Uruguay. To be more exact from Bodega Carrau in Cerro Chapeu. That is North Uruguay not far from Brazil.
