Having tasted through several of the current vintage of Pullus wines, I was pleased to find this 2009 Sauvignon Blanc. Other Pullus wines seemed to wander back and forth between traditional (AKA old-fashioned) and modern styles. This Sauvignon Blanc has an herbal and limestone nose which flows consistently through its flavors. It’s balanced and crisp with a touch of fruit and a medium-short finish. It’s also good with hard-to-pair foods like salads and broccoli. Recommended.
