Weekly Wine Quiz: Showing Everybody The Money

Vinted on September 7, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, and hopefully today you brought your wallets because we’re testing to see if you’re in the know on the world’s priciest current-release wine.

Standard disclaimer: based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I supply the quiz question each week, but do *not* supply the quiz answer directly in the post – YOU supply your best guess for the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer. Incidentally, I’m thinking about changing that and putting this into more of a poll/quiz format, where once you click on your choice you get to see the correct answer instantly (would love your thoughts on that).

Showing Everybody The Money: The most expensive bottle price for a current-release wine hails from what wine region?

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Serve ‘Em Up, Paaaahrdner!

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, amigos!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I supply the quiz question each week, but do *not* supply the quiz answer directly in the post – YOU supply your best guess for the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer. I might be delayed yet AGAIN in getting around to posting the answer since I’m on the road (in Sonoma… again…) this week – your patience is most appreciated!

Here’s another tricky one for y’all, inspired by my recent Wined Down column interview about local wines with AZ winemaker and bona fide rock star Maynard James Keenan:

Serve ‘Em Up, Paaaahrdner!

Arizona now has almost fifty licensed and bonded wineries, but its wines have been served in a few high-profile places. Can you guess at which of the following events Arizona wines have NOT been poured?

  • A) James Beard House dinners
  • B) The White House
  • C) The 2010 Oscars

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Octalactating

Vinted on August 24, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome back to the Weekly Wine Quiz, my friends!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I supply the quiz question each week, but do *not* supply the quiz answer directly in the post. That’s because YOU are supposed to supply the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer. This week, we’re wrapping the foray into the science of oak aging, with a not-so-easy question to put your wine smarties through the staves…

Octalactating?

Methyl octalactones imparted to wine by the wood from aging in oak barrels can be an important source of aroma development in wines meant for aging. What aroma characteristic do they give to a wine?

  • A. Leather
  • B. Vanilla
  • C. Toasted bread
  • D. Coconut

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Hold Your Nose!

Vinted on August 17, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, peoples.

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I supply the quiz question each week, but do *not* supply the quiz answer directly in the post. That’s because YOU are supposed to supply the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer. Because it’s more fun to keep you in suspense (and I’m a jerk like that). To make the suspense worse, I might be delayed in getting around to posting the answer since I’m on the road (again, again, again) this week – your patience is of course appreciated!

Today continues our recent theme on oak, with a decidedly stinky twist…

Hold Your Nose!

Wine barrels are often blamed as the culprit behind the animal and rubbery aromas associated with contamination of wine by yeast of the genus Brettanomyces. What is generally considered the perception threshold of “Brett” above which most people will be able to pick out those aromas?

  • A. 500 mg/l
  • B. 700 mg/l
  • C. 750 mg/l
  • D. 900 mg/l

Cheers – and good luck!
