Five more to go, probably down the sink

I have no idea what grapes this wine is made from, if indeed it is made from grapes. The partner has been given a six pack, what will we do with them all I wonder.

Natural Sweet 2002, Buitenverwachting

It is quite orange. The nose has a lot of botrytis, acetone and vinegar smells. It also smells quite filthy. This is not a good start. The palate has a lot of sugar, a bit of acidity, but also some really dirty, off flavours. It tastes quite oxidised. It is utterly grim. Why do people people make such evil filth? No way, I am sure there is tastier diabetic piss than this wine.

  1. The wine is made from riesling grown on the estate. These people are quality winemakers,and I can only assume you have a faulty bottle or maybe case!!! I am not claiming that this is the best sweet wine made in the Cape,far from it in fact,but it is a light ,well balanced wine that is quite good QPR.
