#181

Yes, the alcohol burns my nose a little


#182

Brilliant​:joy::joy::joy::joy::+1:


#183

I’m getting that a bit too, almost a bit peaty/mulchy. Like an autumnal walk with crumble at the end of it!


#184

I don’t know, actually! And I can’t find any info on whether this is the case. Let me find out for you from our buyer and I’ll let you know. :slight_smile:


#185

That’s probably the alcohol, too.


#186

Let’s taste! Tell us what you reckon!


#187

I’d certainly imagine so!


#188

Should we still be smelling?!


#189

Touch dusty, slightly bitter aftertaste. Lets see how this develops


#190

Oops!

Had to have another sneaky slurp of the Muscadet first.


#191

By all means! But have a taste too, if you like!


#192

Lacking depth here⚓️⚓️


#193

I got that to start with but I decanted around 6 o’clock and now that’s gone.


#194

I am getting a little oakiness mixed in with the liquorice. Don’t the South Africans chuck a few oak planks infor a day or two?


#195

Am I allowed to suggest it tastes of permanent marker? :wink:


#196

It’s not unpleasant but there isn’t much to it.


#197

We have all been there, surely…


#198

Let’s see if the second glass goes down better than the first


#199

Quite short this one.

This started with a rather acrid, musty nose, which soon dissipated. Decanting and aerating took the nose away but left a medicinal nose. But the sharp taste of the wine works with a ripe brie. The cheese makes the wine taste quite different - and much better.
