I know you catch more flies with honey but I am mad again. There is a white wine from New Zealand called Cat’s Pee on a Gooseberry Bush. Stupid, stupid name. Unless that’s what’s really in the bottle – in which case it doesn’t qualify as “white”.
Hey I have an idea. Let’s try marketing the wine instead of a stupid name. Or maybe I should give in to stupid name marketing, rent Hot Tub Time Machine, open a bottle of Cat’s Pee on a Gooseberry Bush, and forfeit three hours of my life.
And yes wine historians, I know that “Cat’s pee on a gooseberry bush” is considered a classic descriptor of Sauvignon Blanc. Not anymore it isn’t.
Okay – maybe it’s a funny label and I do love Sauvignon Blanc – if only I could be sure it’s not really cat’s pee in the bottle.
