I was at a play yesterday at Canadian Stage’s Spotlight on South Africa (more on that tomorrow). In a very clever move, they also had samples of South African wines.
The one that caught my eye was the two oceans sparkling sauvignon blanc. It looked like a sparkling wine by the bottle but I assumed that couldn’t be right if it was a sauvignon blanc, I had never seen a sparkling sauvignon blanc before – I was mistaken. It had a fruity taste but was definitely much drier than the typical sparklings wines I drink (mostly moscatos).
I would recommend this if you’re looking for something sparkling but are usually turned off by the sweetness. Also, at $12.95 a bottle, it’s pretty reasonably priced.
Have you tried a sparkling sauvignon blanc? Is it just me that had never heard of this?
