The Shy Pig Crisp White


Bottle of

I figure that if a producer does a great job with their cheapest wine, then it’s likely to get better as you go up the price scale. So at a big trade tasting I usually start with the cheapest on each table. This one stopped me in my tracks yesterday: it was the cheapest in the room. Turns out this isn’t strictly wine, rather it’s a wine-based drink. Using wizard winemaking technology, the producer behind it then strips out some of the alcohol (it’s just 10.5%) but leaves enough flavour for it to still taste pretty wine-y. I’m rather hoping they’ll add a rose to the range in time for summer and call it Shy Pink Pig.

    I love this ‘nearly’ wine drink. Very smooth.

      Not bad, eh?

    I have the impression that the alcohol is not stripped out by wizard technology (SCC) but is just watered down with grape juice or even water! It’s only 75% wine. I’m going to buy a decent bottle and add my own water.
