I think, sadly, I'm starting to lose my desire for my favourite variety of wine - Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc!
The taste just doesn't seem to please me as it used to. I tend to only enjoy the more expensive brands now, and even then I think I'm just starting to get over it. Seems like I can taste more of the underlying oak/herbaceous notes over the fruit flavours.
What should I try next?
I like my wines fruity and dry, but I can't stand sweetness (I hate Moscato for example). I also don't care much for Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (there's a particular note in it that I don't like).
Help a wine mum out?

Every now and again I get sick of whichever wine variety and move on. I started with sauv blanc, and then pinot Gris/pinot grigio. I now prefer dry reisling, and occasionally unoaked chardonnay. If I'm eating spicy food I go for a straight semillon.
It's been a while since I've any of it, but try Pikes Reisling- still with fruit notes but not sweet (steer clear of sweet reisling!)

I'm a huge Pino Grigio fan, we went to a few vineyards over xmas in the southern highlands and stocked up but the Brown Bros Pino is a good one to try and easy to get at most bottle shops

I went off Sauv Blanc a few years ago, can't stand it now. I like Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio, Reisling and a lightly oaked chardy. I'm a member of a wine club that only sells independent winemakers' stuff so I can't recommend an off the shelf label, though Punt Road Pinot Gris was my go-to several years ago.
ETA: 👍👍 for posting a wine thread before 10am. Thinking ahead 👌

I love me a good Sauv Blanc, I like Oyster Bay, Toi Toi, Evans and Tate, Four Sisters, Home Hill and Josef Chromy (probably my fave).
I also love Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris and again love Josef Chromy/Pepik, 42oS, De Bortoli and Barringwood (my fave).
