Sauternes is a sweet french wine, from some specific region of France and, interestingly, afflicted with a specific blight. Botrytis Cinerea causes noble rot, which partially raisins (it’s a verb now) part of the grape. Dried fruit have higher sugar concentrations, so it makes for sweeter wines. Go science.
However, this one seems to go the way of all wine-cask scotch. Here’s what we thought:
Dan – weird. wood. goes directly to the back of the throat. berries
Simon – white wine spritzer (although I types “shite win” first), sweet & tart, soft drink
Dan – too much burn, mouth drying. berry. sour raspberry candy
Simon – sweet & dry fruits. lots of burn, not very pleasant
Dan – fruit wine, not bad with a splash. tastes the way it smells.
Simon – fruit punch & wine. too much. better with splash but not great. aftertaste is terrible.
Try it? No. Buy it? No.
