Here's an example, a really really great Sauvignon Blanc from Chile that I found in nearby River Edge New Jersey, from Anakena Vineyard in majestic Valle Central.
Paired this wine with two delicious meals.
I love the way a nice Sauvignon Blanc like this one with bright white peach, pineapple and citrus flavors goes with the intense flavors of Indian cuisine.
Here I made the eggs with chives and grated Coatal English Cheddar Cheese, corn bread, avacado and roasted garlic salsa accompanied.
The name of the wine comes is after Anakena which is a white coral sand beach in on Rapa Nui, Easter Island. It is said in local legend of the Tangata Manu (bird-man) that the Easter Island seagull, or Manu Tara, hid its precious egg in a secret hideaway, or Anakena. It seems that there was a contest each year where the bravest islanders swam in search of the egg. The one who found it and brought it safely to Rapa Nui was given the title of birdman, Tangata Manu, and was rewarded with great honour and fortune. I am glad I was able to get my treasure of Anakena with a little less effort.
According to island oral traditions, Anakena was the landing place of Hotu Matu'a, a Polynesian chief who led a two canoe settlement party here and founded the first settlement on Rapa Nui.
The press says "Crisp, Mango, Lemon, Light-bodied
Chile- An intensely aromatic wine with flavors of gooseberry, mango and lemon. Ripe fruits and crisp acidity combine to give a wonderfully clean and well-structured finish. Fresh; perfect with shellfish and lighter fare." Wine Spectator 2010 Best Value
