Cracklin' Savie

New Zealand checked in with one of the wines at the lobster fest and it was unique and different.  The Lake Chalice Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region was labeled as Cracklin' Savie.    The wine was non vintage Sauvignon Blanc with added carbonation. 

Very pale color in the glass, almost to the point of being colorless.  There wasn't much of a nose except for grass clippings.  The carbonation was on the level of an Italian  Prosecco,   The wine was bone dry and as devoid of flavor as it was color.  Bottom line for me was that it tasted like a sweetened tonic water.  A wine for people who don't like wine.  I'll leave it at that.

Lake Chalice Cracklin Savie, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand.  12% alcohol and $15.
