2018 FLOR SAUVIGNON BLANC
As Flor is such a consistent and singular wine, I find that so much of the pleasure lies in the nuances; the subtle changes from year to year that clearly reflect the vintage growing conditions. The 2018 is a classic with lemon curd, chamomile, grapefruit and honey on the nose. A very lifted and exotic vintage. The defining aspect of this version can be found in its seamless and plush texture. It absolutely floats across the palate with white peach and honeysuckle. The 2018 Flor definitely benefited from the extra hang time under perfect ripening conditions that defined the year. Finishes with the vibrant acidity, lime pith structure and sea salt lift that have defined this wine since 2005. A worthy successor and challenger to the epic 2017 Flor.
