Petrol is one of those flavors that I don't really like in a wine, and one which I most encounter in Gruner Veltliner from Austria, however it does have its place in the world of wine.

In this case, the wine doesn't have the traditional citrus core that sauvignong blancs are none for, but that petrol component pushes this to a muted citrus that you taste one to two seconds after the wine is on your tongue.

I gave this wine a seven because I am not a person that likes the petrol flavors, but some with other tastes might enjoy this pretty much. There's gotta be some reason why they're producing this.
