Uncorking the complexities so you can drink wine

I am a wine lover, a wine drinker and a wine explorer. However, I am not a fan of the language of wine. What does it mean when a wine has aromas of fresh cut grass? Is that a good thing? How can a wine be dry? Isn’t all wine wet? My wine is full bodied with nice legs? Should I be jealous? Most of us just want to know if the wine tastes good. I am WSET certified which means I learned about why a wine tastes the way it does (climate, terroir, type of grape used, barreling, ageing, etc.). I am on a mission to explain wine in a way we can all understand. If it is sweet or tart, will it leave your tongue feeling like a desert? I will let you know if the wine is best enjoyed chilled. If it’s overpowering with flavour or subtle and mild. Nothing about grass.
I am also going to tell you about wine pairing, but not in the traditional sense, by explaining what life moments it pairs best with. Is this the type of wine you want to enjoy on a hot summer day on the patio or one you consume while blaring angry breakup music on your couch? Most of us just want to drink a glass of wine and know if we will enjoy it or not. It is my job to make this as easy as possible for you.
So, raise your glass ladies, now fill it with wine and cheers to the enjoyment of it all from the first sip to the last!

Is there a wine that you would like me to explain? Let me know in the comments section below.
