|Trump 2015 Sauvignon Blanc
Since Donald Trump’s inauguration was yesterday, I thought it was only fitting that we open a bottle of Trump wine to celebrate.
I stumbled upon this wine the last time I went on a wine run, and I thought, “I want to drink like a president!” (Yes, I know, Donald Trump doesn’t actually drink.)
Politics aside, I took my first sip of this wine not quite sure what I should expect- I have quite a knack for buying REALLY bad white wines, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this wine is actually rather delightful.
- 2015 sauvignon blanc
- 12.5% alcohol by volume (that’s an alcohol content low enough for this wine lover to enjoy about 3 glasses!)
- Contains sulfites (I’ll be honest- I still don’t really know what that means, and it seems like every wine I drink contains sulfites. I’m starting to think “sulfite” is just another word for “grape” at this point…)
- Place of origin: Charlottesville, VA
I know there are people (wine lovers, even) out there who will never buy this wine because they think they’re making some sort of a statement; to those people, that’s your choice, and there are plenty of other wines out there, but I think this wine is definitely worth trying.
I’m not typically a sauvignon blanc drinker- not that I don’t like it, but as I’ve mentioned, I suck at buying white wine.
This wine is smooth, fruity, and, despite the notes of grapefruit, it’s not too citrus-y (a big plus for me, as I typically find a lot of the white wines to have an overwhelming citrus flavor that I do not enjoy). Trump’s sauvignon blanc is a bit drying, at least according to my mother, but I didn’t notice that as much, and I think it’s safe to say you won’t have to worry about getting a cotton mouth when you drink it.
Now for the technical part:

If I had to describe this wine in one word, that word would be, “simple.” It’s not the kind of wine that has a million different flavors competing against each other at once, and I appreciate that, Mr. President.
