Good question. In our time, Scot and I have collected a number of things. Gin, cook books and kitchen knives are a few, I think its obvious where our passions lie! So why wine?
Well, we like it.
Yes, that is really the answer.
Wine is fascinating. Each bottle is different from the last. The characters of each wine are all varied and complex in their own ways. Every glass is a personal puzzle, trying to identify each flavour compound, smell and taste. Each glass is individual in its flavour profiles. Its exciting and interesting and it does have the power to take you on a journey of intense, fresh, fruity, smokey, woody, earthy, mineraly and nutty flavours, sometimes all at once!
So, take the first steps on your journey into wine, and Drink. Recommend and Repeat.
