Top 10 weird wine ingredients

6. Birch Sap

Sav birch sap wineAccording to John Wright, a forager author, birch sap tastes almost exactly like water, “but the freshest water you have ever tasted, with just a hint of sweetness”. In Sweden, Sav winemakers produce a sparkling wine using a birch sap recipe from 1785.

Sav Sparkling is produced according to the “méthode traditionelle” and is fermented for two years in the bottle.

Sav says its sparkling wine tastes of “citrus, some sour dough bread and nuts. Weak almond scent, and much herbs. Long, slightly nutty balanced aftertaste of forest, fungus, herbs and apples.”
