CAT'S pee and sweaty passionfruit are hardly flavours to make your mouth water but it seems Kiwis can't get enough of them. :shock:

These are the core aromas of New Zealand's world-leading sauvignon blanc, according to a six-year study by a team of lucky wine scientists.

The team spent more than $12m defining the flavours of the country's most popular grape variety, which has a unique flavour and character that has captured the world's interest. :eek:

They concluded it was a winning combination of sweet, sweaty passionfruit, asparagus, and cat's pee. :smile:

The tests were carried out by an expert sensory panel trained to distinguish between sixteen flavours, including canned and fresh asparagus, stone fruit, apple and snowpeas. :???:

A wine region called Wairarapa, near the capital of Wellington, was found to be the top spot for cat's pee influences in the white wine. :shock:

Sauvignon blanc in the celebrated South Island wine region of Marlborough had an intense "sweet, sweaty passionfruit'' and asparagus flavour, a flavour a panel of ordinary wine drinkers ranked their favourite.

Plant & Food science research leader Dr Roger Harker said wine connoisseurs routinely describe wine using the terms such as cat's pee and capsicum and now the market place was also catching on.

One winery, Cooper's Creek, had already caught on, calling its sauvignon blanc Cat's Pee on a Gooseberry Bush.

:grin:

Just to correct things the wine is actually called cats pee on a gooseberry bush which is just one of a range of wines made by the winery who use these names as a publicity thing because a percentage of sales goes to the spca
the winery should actually be praised for supporting a great charity not ridiculed
