Drink This Now: Cousiandntildeo-Macul Sauvignon Gris-photo
by Sarah Bray
With cooler nights setting in on New York City after some of the most humid hot summer days, all I can think of is getting my hands on a glass of sauvignon gris. Originally from France, few places actually still grow the grape now, but vines were brought over to Chile in the 1800s, and the Cousiño family in Santiago is still producing gorgeous wines from it. A relative of sauvignon blanc, this pink-skinned grape produces a wine with a sweet, acidic nose, reminiscent of dried oranges and tangerines, fuller on the palate than its zippy brother-all around, this bottle is perfect for sipping on a cool late-summer evening, and goes great with oysters, mussels, and other richer seafoods.

Cousiño-Macul, Sauvignon Gris 2011, $14
