Working out what makes a good wine good

It’s an important question as wine questions go. Not as important in the greater scheme of things, to be sure. But if you are going to stand up and say “This wine is  kak, bile of satan, tears of dying goat” you better be able to say why.

So I wrote a post for 2oceansvibe that tried to put into words what I thought makes a good wine good. 

I started out trying to be as general as possible, but the post got more and more personal. I think that’s unavoidable.

An interesting comment has been posted, asking if we should consider the ethical side of wine production. Worker treatment, I guess, comes before environmental concerns, but they are both part of this.

It’s something I will consider for future posts.
