Community Tasting Notes 2

  • ChateauShiny Does not like this wine: 82 points

    August 27, 2021 - Medium gold in color. Heavy honeysuckle, peach, and apricot nose. The overall mouthfeel of this wine is syrupy, sweeter than I was expecting, and not enough acidity to carry this level of sweetness for me. Palate matches the nose with the addition of lychee and a hint of pineapple as it warms up. There is a bit of spiciness that builds up with the finish. Thick syrupy finish with a medium amount of warmth from the alcohol (14%!). The finish turns a bit bitter the further it warms up.

    I wouldn’t necessarily agree with the previous reviewer that this is cloying sweet, but I would place this at semi-sweet than the off-dry it proclaims on the label. At this sweetness level from this region of the world I expected a better balance to the package.

    August 25, 2021 - Possibly the most cloyingly sweet wine I've ever had. The only thing I can see pairing it with is a mandarin cake. Certified organic. 14% ABV, and shocking to find out.
