Rating: 6 out of 10 stars
Notes: Sweet, Medium-bodied, Acidic finish, Pineapple, Acetic
K: I do like the way this smells. It is surprisingly thick, medium bodied.
C: Yes, its not a light white.
B: This initial taste is … pickled egg.*
K: It tastes a lot like pineapple.
C: I think its too thick to be a good wine when warm.
K: True, although I like it more as it warms up towards room temperature. The acid decreases and its smoother.
C: It’s definitely better than the Moscato, which was just a one-note wine. It would be good with a salad.
K: It would be awesome with brunch. Quiche, salad, anything light.
C: It would be a good substitute for a mimosa. Its very fruity.
K: It would also be a fantastic base for a white sangria.
* Learning Moment: The detectable smell and flavor of vinegar in a wine is indicative of the presence of a larger than usual amount of acetic acid. Acetic acid is integral to the winemaking process, and especially to drawing out the fruit notes in a wine. It can, however, unbalance a wine if there’s too much of it.
