Summer is winding down but that doesn’t mean brunch and girl’s nights in have to end! I’m a huge fan of all you can drink mimosas or just having a powwow with friends over the right bottle of wine. Recently I was offered the chance to try out some new wines from Chile, how could a girl say no? I was sent the Koyle Costa Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and Viña MontGras Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2014 which I enjoyed thoroughly. I’m not a wine snob, but I do enjoy quality taste.
By itself the Viña MontGras Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2014 works perfectly as an appetizer or with simple fish and seafood dishes, such as cevieches as well as green salads condimented with a bit of Dijon mustard. I enjoyed the sweet and crisp taste of this wine.
The Koyle Costa Sauvignon Blanc 2012 wine has floral, ginger, lemon verbena, salted butter and thyme notes. This wine had a beautiful finish and would work well paired with cheese and various fruits. Both wines are great choices for a brunch.
