Thalia Sauvignon Blanc – Vilana 2012, from Greece (Crete)
Rating: 89 points – WineAndLeisure.com tasting panel
Don’t you just love it when you discover a delightfully enjoyable wine for under ten bucks. This one’s easy on the purse and yet it really delivers. For the wine aficionado, it’s a discovery. Very pleasant and full of character for even the most discerning palate. And for those folks who don’t know much about wine and just want a friendly and refreshing white, this one works out well for them too.
Light silvery gold with a slight greenish hue. A bouquet of tree fruit with a whisper of toasty caramel and gooseberry. Flavours follow through and continue with rich textures of apricot and refreshing citrus. A remarkable wine at 9.95.
Pairs nicely with seafood, Greek dishes and Asian. Try also with white meats with rich creamy sauce.
