From Chile comes Casillero del Diablo Pinot Grigio 2012, namely  the devil’s cellar, an easy drinking fruit-driven white wine with a bouquet of green apples and medium acidity on the palate. The King’s Favour Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009 from New Zealand combines aromas of passionfruit with lime and grapefruit zest and a hint of minerality. Both wines will be on taste at the wine fair.
