Food Pairings for Jonata la Flor Sauvignon Blanc 92w&s
"The bold ripeness of this wine is cradled in a clean coastal acidity, lending it tension and drive. The blend of semillon and sauvignon yields the white flower scent of fresh butter and the creamy flavor of baked pear. The toasty, leesy finish will match a heritage pork chop roasted with apples...92" W&S 6/12 "A big white layered with flowers, honey, apricots and nectarines. Despite its considerable richness, the 2009 comes across as very tightly wound and in need of another year to settle down. The bottle I tasted was initially quite reduced, but improved markedly with air, so readers will need to open this well in advance. The 2009 is 67% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Semillon...90" WA 8/12 "Pale yellow. Deep, powerful aromas of pear skin, melon, green almond and smoky lees, with a bright mineral topnote. At once rich and energetic, offering zesty lemon pith and orchard fruit flavors complicated by anise and honeysuckle. Closes on a refreshingly bitter note, with strong thrust and lingering citrus and herbal character...92" IWC 11/12
