2008 La Florencia Sauvignon Blanc

I tried my first Sauvignon Blanc from Argentina, a 2008 vintage from La Florenzia.  Their vineyards are located pretty high up, 3,000+ feet, near Mendoza in the north-central part of the country. 

The label says that they pick the grapes in 18 kg cases (roughly a little under 40 lb), which they cold process and leave on the yeast lees after fermentation.

They claim the wine tastes of pink grapefruit and lime, which I didn't pick up.  My notes say I thought this was a little sweeter than many of the SBs that I've tried, and the acidity is just right.  I didn't think there was any great subtlety of flavor, but it's a nice summer wine for a BBQ or a picnic.  This SB runs in the $14 range.
