“Choosing The Right Wine Glass”



Question of the week

The question: Can a decent pinot noir be found for $15?

But with no more than $15 to spare, I would tend to opt for just about any other grape. Pinot should be supple and medium-bodied, with flavours of fresh berries and earth lifted by moderate acidity. All too often inexpensive pinot tastes anemic and sharp, as though someone had taken good pinot, watered it down and added a squirt of lemon juice.

Happy Wine Wednesday everyone!
