We see so much pretentiousness in the wine industry. Many "wine aficionados" make you believe you have to dissect a wine to really like it. You have to taste "the deep tar flavours, which intertwine with the vanilla and cedar spice". While that may be some people's M.O (and don't get us wrong, if you have the gift of a palate like that, awesome!).
The truth is though, there's nothing wrong with tasting a wine and simply enjoying it. At the end of the day, a wine bottle takes a family (who has spent at least 20+ years working the soil, putting it in barrels, making it taste phenomenal) and all their hard work and then bottles it up into 750ml. They want you to buy it and go on your own journey with it. There is no wrong or right, just does it taste good or not?
We'd encourage you to make your way through our Top 100 Wine List and find something you enjoy. We're excited to share in your wine journey!
