2013
South Africa
750ml
12% ABV
$9.45 (LCBO)

This wine was an experiment, of sorts. My very significant other usually questions my obsession with the sub ten dollar wine world.
I had bought a rather more expensive wine to sample and it did not really suit us. So I opened this one.
Didn’t do it either.
So the score is really 0-0.

The wine is sour. The sourness hits early and sticks around to remind you that it is sour. The wine was chilled but obviously not enough. We put it in the fridge and go it down to refrigerator temperature. The wine was okay, but not spectacular. The sourness was gone because of the cold. When the glass was out for five minutes and the temperature rose a few degrees the sourness returned.
Lime many inexpensive white wines, this will be nice for making spritzers in the summer.
I’ll pass.
