Pungent smell of cat piss and a flavor of unripe grapefruit. This is truly awful wine, among the very worst wines of my life and certainly the worst Sauvignon Blanc I’ve ever tasted. My father-in-law offered to finish off the bottle because he has sinus problems that dull his senses of smell and taste to a large degree so he doesn’t usually mind wine that I dislike. He poured himself a large glass and after 10 minutes or so he started to detect the smell as the wine warmed and he poured the rest of the wine out. This is an exceptionally repulsive bottle, to be avoided at all costs.

  1. I violently disagree with you. This wine is a fruit cocktail in a glass. All grapefruit and lime. You may have had an off bottle – but this is one of the most reliable cheapo wines I’ve ever had.

    Give it a second chance – and have it with FOOD. Ideally curry or stir fry or fish and chips (with a side of dill sauce)
