I must preface this by telling you that I am not a Sauvignon Blanc fan. Like will only drink in desperate times of need (you know those times, when ALL other booze at the party is exhausted). But I do recognise and recommend a good non alcoholic Sauvignon Blanc when I taste one, Giesen’s Savvy B is a case in point.
I’ve tried 1920’s Pinot Grigio and it is a good one, so it is only fair to give the Sauvignon Blanc a run too.
I’ve got good and bad news for you, depending on how you feel about a Sauv Blanc. I find this actually quite drinkable and not at all repellent, therefore it doesn’t have those true characteristics you’d expect. One whiff of the Giesen and I knew it was all over. With the 1920 I’m not getting those typical passionfruit notes at all. I’m searching hard, they are just not there. This wine is on the dry side, quite acidic, really balanced. In a blind taste test, my Mum took it for a Chardonnay.
So unless you are really into a strong Sauvignon Blanc profile, you are in for a treat with this alcohol free white wine, it is one of the best I have tried!
Buy Again?: I actually would.
