LEARNING ABOUT WINE - WITH KATIE AS YOUR PERSONAL MENTOR
Winespeak can be quite intimidating, all that fancy jargon and waxing lyrical nonsense.
Lemon curd with lashings of butter on a hot, toasted brioche bun. Baked nectarines, with clove, a drizzle of honey, and the crunch of salted macadamia nuts. A hint of honeysuckle wafting past in a warm breeze. The weight and texture of liquid gold. A burst of orange zest shows acidity still holding firm, then it softens into a creamy dream, a 'Fairy-tale' ending.
If you’d like to understand how to taste wine like a pro, breakdown the high brow words into simple palatable sips, get to know what you like and why? Oak or not to oak, decanters and breathing, so many questions.
Then just ask…
