Community Tasting Note

  • kitkat4 Does not like this wine:

    November 27, 2021 - So glad I only purchased one bottle of this. A very odd wine and not my thing at all. As per my understanding, this is a wine to have over multiple days which is how I approached it.

    Day 1: Like tart, unsweetened apple cider with just a touch of funk. Not my thing. Didn't quite finish the glass.

    Day 2 and 3: Nuse a bit more vibrant. Higher acidity than day 1. With a bit of spritz and an unpleasant tingle on the tongue, there is too much to distract from the fruit and wine itself.

    Day 4 was Thanksgiving - did not try it.

    Day 5: Nose still a bit like apples. High acidity but fruit seems masked some with alcohol and nutty flavors. Not particularly enjoyable.

    1/29/22, 5:48 AM - Hello - Thanks for the comment. Not really vinegar like, although there was an apple like component to it. Day 1 was more like unsweetened apple cider. It is pretty expensive for a chenin blanc, so not sure if I will try it again. However, it did occur to me that it could be flawed, I had also seen some other notes on this wine that seemed to be similar, so I wasn't sure. I will keep it in mind if I do decide to try it again!
