Vinted on April 20, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I do not supply the quiz answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. Blah, blah, blah – you know all this already…

Continuing our current theme of quizzing your smarties on the topic of winemaking, we’re about to hit you up with some difficult-to-pronounce, scientific stuff, so get the beakers and hot plates ready:

Continuing our current theme of quizzing you about winemaking comes this week question, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Friday the 13th, unless you suffer from triskaidekaphobia and feel that you will answer unluckily, I mean:

A Rosé Is A Rose Is A What?

How are rosé wines made?

  • A. Red wine grapes are pressed directly, and the juice is fermented without any contact with the grape skins (as in white wine).
  • B. Exactly the same way as red wine, only for a shorter, abbreviated period of maceration.
  • C. “Free run” juice from maceration of red wine grapes is “bled” from the grapes, and then continues fermentation without skin contact.
  • D. Red and white wines are blended together.
  • E. All of the above

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: By The Bunch

Vinted on April 6, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

Standard disclaimer on how this all works: Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps just like you, I do not supply the quiz answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. So you can put your answer in the comments for potential bragging rights later (not that you’d gloat… too much…).

The next round of quizzes focuses on aspects of winemaking; or, as I like to call it, “the real-work work” (critics and journalists and wine personalities have got it easy – we only need to drink the stuff!).

By The Bunch

Red wine grapes are sometimes placed in vats in entire bunches (stalks and all) under a cover of carbon dioxide, eventually fermenting the grapes. Do you know what this method of fermentation is called?

  • A. Pigeage
  • B. Remontage
  • C. Autovinification
  • D. Carbonic maceration

Go public with your smarties and shout out the answer in the comments.

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Something’s Rotten In The State Of Denmark…

Vinted on March 30, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I do not supply the quiz answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. Blah, blah, blah – you know all this already…

Sometimes good wines just go… bad! Meaning, of course, that chemical faults can often ruin an otherwise perfectly good bottle of vino. Today’s quiz wraps up our series on wine faults.

“Something’s Rotten In The State Of Denmark… and Prince Hamlet is taking out the trash!” (major kudos to anyone who can tell me from whence that quote was qouteth, by the way):

Alas, poor infected & smelly vino, I knew you well…

If a wine smells of rotten eggs (yes, really), it has most likely been compromised by what compound?

  • A. Sulfur Dioxide
  • B. Butyric acid
  • C. Sorbic acid
  • D. Hydrogen Sulfide

Cheers – and good luck!
