Ventolera Sauvignon Blanc 2013 is the perfect pairing for avocados, says World Best Sommelier

The World Best Sommelier 2000 Olivier Poussier has mentionned Ventolera Sauvignon Blanc 2013 as a perfect pairing with the Chilean national fruit: the avocado!Ventolera SB 2013 RVF

"I would advise a beautiful expression of a Chilean sauvignon from the Leyda Valley, at the Ventolera winery, 12 km from the pacific ocean, at the San Juan area. Winds and thermal amplitude favour a slow maturity of the grapes. This Ventolera Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from Stefano Gandolini, of whom I talked in the July issue, is one of the best cuvée I have had the opportunity to taste in this country because she has nothing of varietal expression. It is so rare in South-America to find a Sauvignon Blanc which gives way the Terroir! Here, on degraded granites, the wine is very well mastered in its exuberance, remains nuanced, and holds a sharp and refined palate thread"
