Wine Review – Payadores

Payadores, a Sauvignon Blanc from Valle Central, Chile, was the second bottle I recieved in my Wine of the Month Club January 2019 shipment. I hope you enjoy my wine review – Payadores as much as I did preparing to write it!

I’m just a girl who loves wine and these opinions are 100% my own. Everyone chooses a wine for different reasons – type, label, history, etc. Sometimes the wine is a gift, sometimes it’s what you can afford, most of the time it is a fun journey.

My sister was staying withus for three months while in a housing transition. Her thank you gift was a 6 month subscription to the Wine of the Month Club! She knows me well. One of my favorite things to do is try new wines.

According to the accompanying newsletter, Bunch of Grapes, Payadores has “A sweet, bright bouquet; reveals notes of white flower, ripe nectarine, lychee and lemongrass.”

My first sip thoughts were: WOW – so bright, so smooth. second sip found a floral note with an acidic taste. It coated my tounge slightly. I’m not sure I could pull out lychee because I have never had one – hmmmmm! I did get floral and lemongrass.

Wine and Food

I paired it with a recipie from Ina Garten of the Food Network; Roasted Vegetable Soup with Brioche Croutons (and I added a little shredded parmesan cheese). Both the soup and the wine were excellent! The light, bright acidic wine was a nice foil to the full body of the roasted veggies, of course, it was perfect with the Brioche and Cheese!

I would buy this wine again, we have some Sauvignon Blanc drinkers in the crowd. I hope you enjoyed my wine review – Payadores. If you want to try this wine, or give a great gift to your favorite wine lover, check out Wine of the Month Club!
