Wine flavour confirmed by six-year study.

In comments at the previous post, Neil wondered who first associated sauvignon blanc and cats' urine.

Apparently, it is official, according to a six-year study by wine scientists:

The team spent more than $12million 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.

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


But what on earth is 'sweaty passionfruit'?
