Drink This Now: Cousiandntildeo-Macul Sauvignon Gris
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 CousiÃ±o 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.
