Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil) Reserva 2010 Chardonnay Is The Perfect Halloween Wine


Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil) Reserva 2010 Chardonnay (Chile), $6.00-$10.99, 88 points, is a steal! 
For the newbie wine lover, here's a feast for your eyes, imagination, and ears (The wine, is the feast for your mouth and your nose):Casillero Del Diablo Video

CYT 2010 Chardonnay is mineral-water light (Almost Gavi clear with a warmer hue), the aroma is gentle to slight with a hint of honey dew melon, the body is light to medium (Refreshing and crisp like a Sauvignon Blanc with more texture), and the flavor is  Pomelo "like a sweet, mild grapefruit" and watermelon, with a slight ginger finish.
This wine is not going to wow your friends, but it is no trick, and is a refreshing treat, just not for the kids.
If you're looking to pair this Chardonnay, I believe it would pair with almost anything! Now I'm not suppose to say that, and I've mentioned "The Rules of Pairing before", but the acidity and drink-ability will clear your palate from fish to oysters, lamb to beef (South America almost means beef). Well, you get the picture. $6.00 was a down and dirty theft!
