I love wine. Like you, I've been to wine tastings and cellar doors. I've also done a wine tasting courses and dated an oenologist.

It is my belief that the wine tasting vocabulary describes something completely different to the normal tastes associated with those words.

The best experience I had of this was at the wine tasting course. We were presented with 6 glasses of similar wines, Chardonnay one week, Sav Blanc the next, etc.

Being able to compare similar wines allows you to discern the subtle similarities and differences between them. When the instructor says that the first three have a certain characteristic, and the second three don't, you can learn to identify that difference. Wine experts may call that 'gooseberry', but it's not the same as actual gooseberries.

I've not tried the Tahuna sav blanc - I'll have to keep an eye out for it. NZ Sav Blancs are awesome, my favourites: Huia, The Ned, Church Road, Oyster Bay, Nautilis and for something different try Toi Toi sparkling Sav Blanc.

Cheers
