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!
