Weekly Wine Quiz: Oh Sherry…

Vinted on March 23, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

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…).

This week we’re continuing the WWQ theme of stinky wine faults! Sooner or later you’re going to run into one of these, so you might as well embrace the fact of the stank and know the enemy!

 

Oh Sherry…

Sometimes good wines just go… bad! Meaning, of course, that chemical faults can often ruin an otherwise perfectly good bottle of vino. When a wine smells like Sherry, only you didn’t actually buy a Sherry, we don’t start singing Steve Perry tunes from the mid 1980s (well, maybe some of us do). No, in those cases we say that the wine has been…?

  • A. corked
  • B. lactized
  • C. maderized
  • D. oxidized

Cheers, and good luck!

Vinted on March 16, 2012 under wine appreciation, 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…

Anyway, this week we’re continuing the WWQ theme of stinky wine faults! Enjoy!

Also: don’t forget, Wine Blogging Wednesday #75 is next week on March 21st! Get your single vineyard wines ready, peoples!!!

Okay, now back to WWQ, already in progress:

Oh, Captain! Mercaptan!

Sometimes good wines just go… bad! Meaning, of course, that chemical faults can often ruin an otherwise perfectly good bottle of vino. Organic compounds known as mercaptans can cause what kind of off-putting stench in a wine?

  • A. Onions and cabbage
  • B. Rotten eggs
  • C. Potted plants
  • D. Burnt matches

Cheers, good luck, and happy (and safe!) St. Paddy’s Day!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Taint Too Good

Vinted on March 9, 2012 under wine appreciation, wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

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…).

This week we’re kicking off the next WWQ theme, which has to do with a geeky topic that we all hate to face as wine lovers but chances are we cannot, alas, entirely avoid: stinky wine faults. Sooner or later you’re going to run into one of these, so you might as well embrace the fact of the stank and know the enemy!

“Taint” Too Good

Sometimes good wines just go… bad! Meaning, of course, that chemical faults can often ruin an otherwise perfectly good bottle of vino. Do you know which chemical compound causes what is known as “cork taint?”

  • A. mercaptans
  • B. 2,4,6-trichloroanisole
  • C. Butyric acid
  • D. Sulfur Dioxide

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Out For Italian

Vinted on March 2, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, peoples!

Today marks the final “cepage synonym” themed quiz. A theme, I’ll note, that was supplied by one of you… thus furthering underscoring your awesomeness, good tastes, and – let’s just go ahead and say it – probably superior attractiveness as well (if you’ve got further ideas for quiz themes, shout em out!).

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent YOU, I will not be supplying the 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… right?).

Out For Italian

Prugnolo, Nerino, Morellino and Calabrese are all synonyms for what Italian red wine grape?

Cheers – and good luck!
