Twitter Wine Reviews - January 2010

The Twitter Wine Review Social Experiment. I never understood wine reviews, the classy ones. Sure - 3 stars, 4 stars, but when they got to acidic bouquets and well textured noses. They lost me. Here's a social trend: man-in-the-street wine reviews, from someone who knows what he likes, probably knows what others would like, but refuses to hoighty toighty it up.

Enjoy!

My Twitter Wine Review List for January 2010:

2005 Bellingham Cabernet Sauvignon. Splash of Cabernet Franc. Heavy oak. Really heavy. Original though. 7/10.

2009 Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc. Delicious. Peachy. Perfect Thursday night vintage. 7/10.

Kanu Bin 33 Blend. Pineapple. Like in Liqui Fruit. 4/10.

Kanu Bin 45. Simple but tasty. Good bin. Better than the 6/10.

2009 Boekenhoutskloof Porcupine Ridge Sauvignon Blanc. Quite naas for an el cheepo. 5/10.
