Casillero del Diablo Reserva, Central Valley Chardonnay, 2008

Tasted 07/12/10, 75cl, 13.5%. Widely available UK, c.£7. Though it says 'reserva', this is basically Concho y Toro's entry level brand in their CdD portfolio. It's a Central Valley blend. However, as is often the case with this company, even their basic wines are better than your average New World 'varietal gluggers'. Very good tropical fruit on the nose, vanilla and apricots on the palate. Zesty and well balanced. Excellent value for money. Drink now. 15/20
