No! It’s all a matter of personal taste. I think there are a lot of folks who genuinely do not like the taste of SB period. I know some of those people! There are some who like old world SB but not new world and vice versa. And I reckon there is also a fashion backlash against NZ SB. Some of it is deserved because after the initial wow factor from small producers making well made wine, the big industrial makers got in on the act and sullied a good name. But some of it is just a fad in the face of well made wines because it is cool to say you don’t like NZ SB!
I like Craggy Range Te Muna Road, Dog Point Section 94 and very happy when my brother gives me the occasional Cloudy Bay. I also love Pouilly Fume and Sancerre. So I am now well and truly out as a SB lover!
