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!
