So for years I have listened to the knowledgeable discuss how they can smell/taste various fruits and flavours in wines, not once understanding what the hell they are yapping on about. I enjoy wine, I enjoy going to tastings and cellar doors for the wines, I like trying different wines and we buy and drink lots of the ones we like. Not once have I EVER been able to say I distinctly identify a particular fruit in a wines bouquet.
Till last night, drinking a Tahuna sauvignon blanc from Marlborough in NZ, I drink this stuff like lolly water, there is always 3-4 bottles in the fridge and for the very first time I could smell and taste strawberries in the wine. It was astonishing!
The only explanation I can think of is my taste buds are recovering from 30 years of smoking, it has only taken a decade!
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
