Xplorador Sauvignon Blanc 2008 wine review by (PB)
Xplorador is one of the value line wines of Chilean wine masters, Concha Y Toro and this one is another nice value. For $7--that's right count 'em--7, you get a wine that is supremely varietal with grassiness, some lemon and a touch of stone fruit in the bouquet which rises up from a pale gold hue.
Palate--citrusy, juicy core, really vibrant acidity, fuitiness and a nice finish. This is a lot of wine for the money and will cut through the fattiest sauce you can deliver. So raise a glass to this up and coming varietal out of Chile which just keeps getting better.
