April 13, 2013 - Bottom-end quaffing red, but better than some. Far too young at a year and a half but this is the cheap and of the market. Allegedly at half-price £5 in Sainsburys, it's made for the "make young sell cheap mass market for idiots " UK market.
Purple colour and pretty dense-looking. Not much nose. It's like the cheap Australian end of the market, but with some Tempranillo to calm it down. Pretty industrial palate, with some purple fruits and some tarry and bitter strong young tannins. As it opens up, the tannins come out and bite you. This is on for the vodka-and-excitement lovers. rather than anyone looking for a sensual taste experience. Only 13% though, so it's not that it's hot, just strong. bitter and tarry. There is fruit on the palate, and quite an amount of it, alternativin gbetween a bit sweet and somewhat chemicl. It's a vague purple-fruit flavour, and definitely sharp, chemical-like. I can sense both the Syrah and the Tempranillo as I put my mind to it, but really, this isn't about the more subtle aspects of these fine grapes. Hmmm, drying tannins on the end.
It's not entirely unpleasant, and if you like alcopops you will probaly love this. Which makes sense: it's aimed at the UK mass-market WKD drinkers. It's just not wine as you'd usually expect to drink it. It's not quite as bad as the McGuigan stuff I once accidentally tasted, but I wouldn't recommend it very much at all.
Take it to a wild party, or eat it with well-charred barbecue!
Edit: Day 2. Disjointed, slightly sweet, still chemical if strong fruit. Tannins still biting like a rabid ferret.
