Finca El Portillo Bodegas Salentein Sauvignon Blanc 2009
External Reviews for Finca El Portillo Bodegas Salentein Sauvignon Blanc
The nose is slightly more vegetal than ideal, but in the mouth there is both good acids and body. Flavors of baked apples and dried mangoes seem sweet, and that's because residual sugar is present.
Honest Sauvignon aromas of citrus and grapefruit set out the welcome mat. The palate follows suit with varietally correct grapefruit and lime flavors, while the finish shows club soda and other drying aspects. Not a world-beater but a pleasing wine.
Lemony fresh, and fragrant with a crisp natural acidity that's bright and clean as a cool mountain stream in springtime.
