Destination Argentina!

Does this look familiar? It's the feature this week at all the World Market's!

Mapema Sauvignon Blanc
This loveable white starts out with enticing aromas of lemon, fresh herbs, honeydew rind and a hint of oak. Once you swirl it around your mouth, you'll get a vibrant blast of lemon zest acidity along with lemongrass and a slightly creamy texture. This wine delivers a lot of body without losing its lively acidity, and the crisp finish doesn't keep this wine from lingering on your palate. Hard to find this kind of complexity and flavor intensity at such a reasonable price. Great all by itself, but this one will match up nicely with grilled tuna and swordfish, seared scallops, sautéed white-flesh fish like sole, or even lighter chicken dishes. A real winner.

More About Mapema
Mapema is a combination of the first two letters of the partner's first names-Mariano seemed to think that he was more important, so his appear twice! The label displays three grape vines following harvest-vines that have done everything in their power to produce grapes that will go on to create a great wine. It is a feeling that the two winemaking partners share with each other and express in their wine.
