In conclusion, I have neither the taste buds to detect the fresh, fruity or honeyed nor the nose to sniff the aroma of lycee, greengrass or gooseberry. Over the weekend, on invitation of friends, attended a session on wine appreciation over dinner. Was all excited as until then, I guzzle my wine preferring the taste of white over red. Not knowing how to sip and enjoy. However, after going through Pinot Noir to shiraz and a bottle of sweet Riesling, I still prefer white wine. The next bottle of wine I purchase, I'll eye, nose and swirl the aerated liquid round my tongue.
