Weekly Wine – Vinecrafter

South Africa
13.0% ABV
$9.95 (LCBO)

Not sure if I’m going to get to the bottom of this.
This meaning the bottle of this South African wine.
The first sips were rather brutal – the wine was at room temperature so the bottle ended up in the freezer to get down to a more suitable temperature.
That didn’t help much.
I started to think I should chill my lips so the wine doesn’t warm up before it hits my taste buds – but that’s too much work.
The wine is very acidic. Too acidic. I have never had a wine so acidic that it hides the flavour completely. It is like those children sour candies that have some sour stuff over a sugary candy. But there is no candy here. There is no discernible flavour that I can pick out with my acid infested palate.
Perhaps this bottle is off?
I won’t buy another to try.
