Jumping out of the glass

I’m not a wine connaisseur; let me tell that first. But in 15 years living in wine producing areas in South Africa I learned how to distinguish a good quality wine (even if I don’t like the taste of it) from the lesser qualities. In the core it’s quite simple. The poorest quality is wine that you smell by only opening the bottle. Pretty sure you will have a hangover the next morning by drinking just one glass. Poor quality wines are those that you smell when these are poured in a glass.

A good quality wine is a wine that you can only smell by sticking your nose in the glass. And when drinking it the taste remains indulging your palate. The REAL connaisseur is able to distinguish the best of the good qualities and won’t even touch the lesser (poor) qualities.

Now we got a Pinotage (2013) of Orange River Cellars in the Northern Cape. I should have read the label better: ” …. with aromas of raspberries, blackcurrant and nutmeg jumping out of the glass” ….

Think we’re gonna give it away …. 😀
