The Donna Review

I am not a great Sauvignon Blanc fan, so will be interesting. But on a good note it is a 2018 so has had 3 years to mature and mellow.

It is a classic colour in the glass, lovely and light, with a distinct white wine bouquet.

Well on taste I have to say I’m not a fan, it is sharp and reminds me of a cheap BBQ wine – not one I would expect out of a Qantas Wine Advent Calendar – and it retails for $30! This doesn’t taste like a 3 year old vintage but a much younger one. 

I only had a few sips – but that was enough for me.

Wine Rating: 1/5

Man with no Palate Review

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion (unless there is a ridiculous exception) that I prefer an appropriate chilled red to a white wine. I am sure if you are a white wine connoisseur that this wine is nice. But to me it tastes cheap and nasty. Lacks… finishes there. That said I will be holding it back for the next Risotto as we have a considerable amount left in the bottle.

Wine Review: 1/5
