Cabernet Sauvignon

Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy Red & White Wine (Episode 352)

We taste the wine served to those travelling with Virgin Atlantic in Premium Economy Seats.

Both wines are produced in Spain, the white being a Sauvignon Blanc and the red being produced from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

The Sauvignon Blanc has a nice honey colour but does not taste as we would expect a Sauvignon Blanc to taste.

The nose does have a little of the honey scent with maybe a little oak detectable too!

A pleasant but not exceptional wine unless of course tasting at 30,000 feet would make a difference.

A Cabernet Sauvignon is not a grape that Spanish vineyards are particularly known for growing.

On the nose, there is a scent of plums, but in terms of taste, the tannins seem to kill any taste that the wine is struggling to put forward.
