WINE OF THE WEEK

October 06, 1999|By Michael Dresser

1998 Casa Lapostolle Sauvignon Blanc, Rapel Valley ($9). This full-bodied, creamy-textured sauvignon blanc is a magnificent illustration of the progress being made in Chilean wine. This well-crafted white offers flavors of juniper, herbs, pears, apples and wood smoke. The clarity and grip are far greater than you usually find in a wine in this price class. It's simply a terrific value from a first-class winery.
