Guardian Sauvignon Blanc

Name: Guardian
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: Chile
Vintage: 2015
Price: $16.79

Why did I decide to try this wine? I bought this wine during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil a few weeks ago and so decided to look for wine from South America. The label caught my eye and it was in the cart.

Would I prefer one glass or indulge in the bottle? Bottle. I was tempted to say glass, but on my second glass I was convinced this was a wine I would buy again (and that this bottle likely wouldn't make it to see tomorrow...)

What shoes would I wear drinking this wine? The Saltwater Original, in yellow of course.

How would I describe the wine? The Mr. and I tried this wine together. We both smelled the wine, looked at each other, and said "it smells like lemons". Coming from two non-expert wine drinkers who simultaneously agreed on the smell of a wine neither of us had tried before, we immediately concluded that we are getting good at this wine tasting thing! I am 100% sure we are giving ourselves more credit than deserved, but we are going with it :) I enjoyed the flavour of this wine with its hints of citrus and think it would be excellent served with salmon and salad.
