2008 URBAN uco - Sauvignon Blanc

Country of origin: Argentina
Area/Appellation: Mendoza
Variety/Style: Sauvignon Blanc
Cellaring: Drink now
Supplier Agent: Grape Expectations Vintners
Availability: Readily
Price Range: $11.00

Tasting Note:
If your looking for a non-NZ style of sauvignon blanc, this may well be it. Rather than being tropical and overt (and often sweaty or cat's pee), this is mineral, restrained fruit, lemony and fresh. The palate is lean and acidic (the vineyards are at 1,100 metres above sea level) but with enough weight of fruit for balance., making it a great match for lighter seafood dishes - oysters, calamari, and white fleshed fish.
