Sherwood Estates Pinot Noir

The second wine of the blind Pinot Noir tasting was a Sherwood Estates from New Zealand. I wasn’t really a fan of this wine, but I didn’t hate it at the same time. This wine was extremely smooth, but it tasted a little watered down in my opinion. It’s almost as if flavor was sacrificed for the sake of drinkability. This goes back to a previous blog I wrote about the tasty bites demo. I feel like drinkability versus flavor is a common theme in wines.

A young woman attending the event named Holly said this particular wine she could serve at a party and “nobody would not like it.” I felt the same. There wasn’t really a distinctive flavor in this wine, but it wasn’t horrible to drink. I think if I haven’t been tasting more and new red wines with my internship, I would have found this one a lot more favorable. But since my palette is expanding, I think I am starting to like wines that are a bit more complex in flavor. As far as complexity, I learned a lot about the tongue as well and how a wine can taste different as it passes through all the taste buds. This one tasted a little bland as it passed through my taste buds, but still not completely tasteless. Obviously, the Sherwood Estates wine was not my favorite. More to come this week!
