Chut! is an intriguing wine because it is made from a very rare grape variety that makes a beautiful wine with subtle aromas and a long finish.
The grape variety is Sauvignon Rose which is so named because the skin has a soft pink color. It is thought to be a mutation of Sauvignon Blanc that probably occurred hundreds of years ago in the Loire Valley.
The grapes are deep pink in color and produce a wine with a pink hue which is not a rosé but rather a white wine. This is a very pleasant drink with a lot going on. Think herbs and flower petals and a lovely streak of minerality.
