Out of favour like Guen's favourite aromatic, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc is snubbed by the cool kids. Why is this and what can this grape do for those looking to venture into wine tasting? Climb onto the spare bed with Emily and Guen in Guen's spare room where they are trying to avoid the dog and Join them for a glass, a trip down memory lane and a discussion of this full-on varietal.
this week's wines:

Liverpool have entered the race to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi, joining Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in a three-way tussle for the winger⚡️
According to Bild, the Reds are keeping a close eye on the 18 year-old👀
Will Odoi be a good buy?🤔
Berhubung beredarnya kabar bahwa Zidane sedang mengejar winger dari Liverpool, Sadio Mane. Menurut Kevin Hatchard, transfer Mane ke Madrid tidaklah Realistis karena menurutnya Mane sering kali berbicara bahwa dia nyaman dan senang diLiverpool sehingga kemungkinannya ke Madrid cukup kecil.
Hiking Arangieskop according to a drama queen (it's me, I'm the drama queen)🌿This 2-day hike outside Robertson was physically and mentally the hardest thing I've ever done and that's not the most dramatic statement I'm making so brace yourselves for more facts to know before you go:
🚗I'm not saying you're gonna feel like you're lost in the middle of god knows where on the mountain pass to the hike but I'm also not *not* saying it...
🐢Day 1 is 9,5km of uphill but omg are you gonna feel like the hiking kween you were born to be when you see the overnight hut 5ish hours later? ABSOLUTELY.
👭Also pack a buddy who's happy swapping bags with you. They should have Strong Motivational Quotes and Tough Love to keep you going (tenks baby @leilastein )
🌚The views from the summit are great but I wouldn't know cos we didn't see them (thanks mist).
☔A rain jacket is necessary for the 12km descent of Day 2, along with waterfall-climbing, sliding-over-boulders-on-your-ass and general steep-muddy-slope-scrambling skills cos it's wild out there and the path isn't always clear. We got home filthy, exhausted, sopping wet and utterly elated🙆🏼It's the kinda nature experience that puts you in your place so I ten outta ten would recommend. We paid R190 in total for the hiking permit and night at the cabin, and you can phone the Langerberg Municipality to book. Happy adventuring!🌿
As the Dutch won 4-0 in yesterday’s Euro Qualifier, both Gini and Virgil were on target for them, I have to say they are looking pretty impressive at the moment.
Liverpool’s interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi is not going away. Hudson-Odoi is contracted with Chelsea until 2020, but has made it clear he wants to leave. Chelsea though have a two window transfer ban and may be forced to keep him and potentially loose him on a free next summer.
Alberto Moreno will definitely leave Liverpool in the summer and it appears that Lazio are leading the pack for his free transfer.
Ryan Babel has spoken about his regret for leaving Liverpool. He said he felt he had to move to keep his place in the Dutch side.
Eden Hazard has spoken out about his admiration for Mo Salah. He said he is trying to hit the levels of the Egyptian, which is high praise indeed.
Ben Woodburn came off the bench to hand a win to Wales in injury time. Woodburn who is back at Anfield following his return from loan, came on as a late substitute to net the winner.
James Pearce has said that he would be amazed if Liverpool wanted to sign Dybala. He believes it is just agents trying to find a lucrative move.
Divock Origi is keen to get his Liverpool playing career fully back on track and in a recent interview he has stated he would play anywhere for the club. Personally I like the lad and he is making some quite meaningful contributions as a sub, making good use of his strength and pace.
Liverpool are also rumoured to have been scouting Joao Jota of Benfica. The Portuguese winger is being looked at by a number of clubs and has a 30 million Euro release clause.
Well that’s your lot for today. Any news you would like to share or comments on the above always welcome.
Eden Hazard in an NBC Sports interview the other day: "Mo Salah is one of my good friends and what he is doing is incredible... I want to try to reach that level." Wow! Massive statement from one of the league’s best... your thoughts?
