Weekly Wine – Naked Grape

18 Jun

SONY DSCNaked Grape Uncorked Shiraz
year – N/A
Canada
750ml
12.5% ABV
$9.95 (LCBO)

So here is an inexpensive wine from Canada. I like the label and I like the name.
Naked grape. There is honesty here.
It proclaims itself as an “unoaked shiraz.”
This means it fermented in a plastic bucket – just like you can do at home.
It proclaims itself a combination of Canadian and International wines.
It calls itself a blend, but that word is too kind.
So it is not a blend of grapes but of fermented wine. A bunch of shiraz wines poured into a plastic bucket, it could be stainless steel, swirled around and bottled. Then sold.
The result … not too good.
It is sour. It tastes like wine I made at home. It tastes like wine I made at the Swansea Brew Club back in the day. I paid about two bucks a litre for that stuff. This costs more.
