Older wines from archive

Pullus Sauvignon Blanc 2009 A special late harvested style where grapes were dried inside the loft of winery before fermentation. Spicy, nutty and honeyed aromas carry on through lifted spice, dried apricot, honey flavors. Rounded and deeply viscous in the mouth with very fine acidity to balance. 17/20

Pullus Sauvignon Blanc A 1990 10.3% Auslese level sugars 23.9 residual sugar. Deep yellow green, highly reflective color. Complex mixture of subtle mineral, butter, dried apple and green leafy aromas and flavors. Complex, succulent and sweet finishing, but with plenty of acidity to keep from cloying.  17.5/20

Pullus Sauvignon Blanc 1986 11.8%, A late harvested wine with a bright, reflective, deep yellow color and a relatively low 13 grams of residual sugar. Wow, what a wonderfully complex nose with hints of tinned green bean/ sweet pea and shades of butter and straw. An incredible texture, polished glass-like, slick and smooth and viscous with a refreshing lemony acidity underpinning a long melt-away finish. Not a hint of oxidation, so elegant and fresh for its age, a classic example of the best from the past. 18.5/20  

Pullus Sauvignon Blanc 1970 Bright reflective yellow --luminous almost. Much sweeter than the 1986, with 28 grams residual sugar amplified by less acidity. A touch of toasted botrytis and roasted nut aromas initially but with airing this shows more Sauvignon-like fresher herb notes. Still deliciously fresh and juicy for its age. Well balanced acidity to sweetness. 16/20
