Giesen Pure Light Sauvignon Blanc
Only 9.5% alcohol, but the payoff is a wine that's mean and green. It starts oniony and reductive and is followed by green notes of nettle, jalapeño pepper and tomato leaf with just a hint of fruit in the form of passion fruit and lime. On the palate, the acidity is underripe and searing. There's a touch of juicy, limey fruit but it's beat into submission by the acidity.
