The GOOD news is, the word on the street is right, this does taste like a legit savvy b. A slightly acidic one but a Sauvignon Blanc none the less.
The BAD news (for me at least) is that it tastes like a savvy b. I just can’t do a sav. Not sure if it was a bad experience long forgotten, but I just can’t stand the flavour. I would only drink in extreme emergencies (ie only thing left at a party when you just have to keep drinking).
I knew going into this taste test that this was the likely outcome, but I still had to try for myself, just in case it accidentally tasted less offensive.
This makes giving this one a rating hard. If I imagine that I don’t have a gag reaction to this varietal, then this might earn an 8 or 9/10. Its low sugar and low cal so it gets extra points!
But for me, no thanks. Giesen please do a Pinot Gris!
Rating: This is the best of the best of the Sav Blancs. 10/10 if you like SB.
