Article by: William Dowd
According to Dowd’s Spirits Notebook, Absolut is testing “Tune, a “sparkling fusion” of vodka and white wine” for a limited time in Australia.
The blend is 60% Absolut vodka and 40% Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
A spokesperson for the vodka brand stated the new concoction has
“fresh tropical fruits with a balanced sweetness through the front- and mid-palate which is brought to life through the bubbles … with a persistent medium strength Absolut vodka flavor and balanced sweetness leading on to a dry finish.”
