In this episode, we taste a wine John L thought he had enjoyed at a restaurant a few weeks before recording this episode. John L wanted to see how much different the wine tasted outside the context of a convivial Sunday Lunch with Friends in the cold light of the day (or perhaps cold light of the cellar would be more appropriate)
Little did he know at the time of recording that the wine was bound to taste different as the wine he had tasted at the restaurant was a Malbec and the wine he and John were tasting in the cellar was a Shiraz?
Can you spot the confused look on his face as he begins to taste it?
On the nose, the small was one of a herbaceous smell rather than a fruity taste.
The taste too, had little fruit flavour, with the taste being once again more herbal.
A really nice taste, very easy to drink which at 14.5% alcohol content could be slightly dangerous!
John M could detect mint and whilst other flavours were present we were unable to identify them.
