La Flor Sauvignon Blanc 2021 'Dry, crisp: an aperitif or sip with smoked fish!'
La Flor Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta are fourth-generation winemakers who founded the Pulenta Estate in Mendoza, Argentina in 2002. Across their range they are known for making precise and elegant wines of which this is a great example. The grapes come from from both Finca La Zulema and Viñedos Don Antonio vineyards. The grapes are hand-harvested, ferment in stainless steel tanks and spend three to five months on the lees before bottling .
There is a subtle saltiness on the palate with tropical fruit flavours which combined makes this a really fresh and appetisining aperitif. But it is also a great foil for smoked salmon which is glistens under cracked black pepper and a generous squeeze of lemon.
