In this episode, we taste a wine we hope will help us identify the “Jammy” taste people talk about when tasting some wine.
The episode follows on from the episode where we try to explain what some people might call “Snobby wine Terms”.
So we selected this particular wine, Yellow Tail Jammy Red Roo because it actually has Jammy on the label.
The blend is made up of around 80% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% of other red varietals.
The wine smells sweet and of strawberries. John M could also detect vanilla on the nose.
The wine has hardly any tannins which give it that jammy taste.
Summarising the wine John M says it has that sticky sweetness, it’s soft, fruity, easy, incorporating a lot of things that many people want from a wine.
John also felt that this wine would be a great introduction to Red Wine for someone who drinks White wine and would like to get into Red.
