Last but not least… This review is the final one from the four-part series on great wines at great prices. On April 20th, I presented you with both a white and red by Goats do Roam. The next review after that – Part II – was posted on May 4th and featured Cono Sur Bicicleta and Pelee Island Pinot Noir, both very delectable wines. My last review, which was Part III, I introduced you to Montalto Pinot Grigio, a highly recommended summer wine and a nice balanced medium bodied red, Solaz Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon.
 
Santa Carolina sauvignon Blanc, 2015The last white wine I have picked for you is Santa Carolina Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Chile – $ 8.95. This is a very casual backyard BBQ wine and for the price and this quality, how could you go wrong with this well balanced Sauvignon Blanc? Very easy to drink with a slight complexity, it starts off a bit sweet but finishes dry with notes of pear and lemon. Is a herbed beer can chicken on the BBQ too casual you ask?  No way Jose!  It’s super yummy and sometimes the best choice is quite simple really!

 

 

 

To conclude with my four-part series red wines, I opted for Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, caliterra-cabernet-sauvignon-cropChile – $9.95. Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon is a great option for those on a budget. It’s offered at a great price and is pretty consistent in quality year after year. This ruby red wine has aromatic notes of pomegranate, ripe red berries with a slight earthiness. These are very complex flavors for such a delightful, budget friendly wine. This beauty will pair well with any grilled meat you choose!
 
There are really so many great wines out there, there’s one to fit every budget. I have suggested a few of my favorite wines which I have enjoyed for many years. So which ever one you choose to drink this summer, I hope you find it delicious, delectable and satisfying!
 
Cheers
