Wine Review: Brave Stallion Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Brave Stallion Sauvignon BlancThe Brave Stallion Sauvignon Blanc was a cheap wine impulse buy. I love these cheap Chilean wines. I’ll just say that to start off. I did no research on it whatsoever before buying. I saw it at a local wine shop, saw the price and just bought it. I often do this simply because you are always bound to find a gem at least 50% of the time. The other 50% includes some, shall we say, “interesting” results.
If you can’t gauge the direction this review is going at this point, then I need to work on my subtlety skills.


Golden color. In a Sauvignon Blanc. Oh dear…


Gasoline and acid. Let me tell you, no two flavors make the mouth water like those. I can’t wait to taste it.


To be fair, there is some fruit here. It’s faint but it’s there. I can taste some lemon-lime with strong, strong citric acid flavors. The wine is harsh and not pleasant on the palate. The mouthfeel is hollow as the brief fruit gives way to rubber tires, pleasant and welcoming in a good dry Riesling with some minerality, but not in a Sauv. Blanc. I think I have a can of turpentine somewhere in the house that might match this.

With Food

Based on the beatdown my mouth took from this bottle, I say save this for when you’re homeless.
