Ballandean Estate 2008 SSB


Pale as water. Smells like gasoline and drinks as rough as guts. Salty and almost fizzy.

I drank it while watching Bear Grylls drink his own urine. As he retched and spluttered, I couldn't help but feel envious.

SSB would usually stand for Semillion Sauvignon Blanc. I can only assume they used an abbreviation so they didn't get into strife with the ACCC for false advertising.

Rating: 2
Drink with: Local anaesthetic

Price: $16


  1. Hi Tim
    Sometimes I love Google Alert and sometimes I don't.:) :)
    Sorry to hear you didn't like the 2008 SSB, lucky the judges at the Sydney International Wine Show gave it a Blue Gold Medal, putting it in the top 10% of wines at the show and in the running for the top 100.

    Just not my cup of tea I guess.
