San Pedro describes its sauv blanc as “fresh, bright and expressive”, which sounds more like a girl we’d like to date than a wine we’d like to drink… But, on opening the bottle we were quickly convinced that this is worth your time.
For under a tenner, we wouldn’t expect much complexity or subtlety, however, this has to be in contention for Esquire’s “house wine”. Refreshing, crisp and actually very elegant, this white combines citrus and minerality and layers of flavour. Think fresh cut grass, apples, tropical fruit — there’s a lot in there.
