holiday wine

Rather deprecating to be understood term for the quality of a wine, which is associated with positive and charming memories of a holiday. This was enjoyed in a rustic pub on the edge of a pine forest with a view of a bay in bright sunshine or romantic sunset with soft background music in the company of friends and / or beloved partner and has tasted phenomenal. The description of the "delicacy" is exuberant in mainly hedonistic Form like dreamlike, gorgeous, overwhelming, stunning and unforgettable. Still drunk on the wine and this happy experience you buy not only one, but a whole box Bottles and is happy to open one of them and reminisce at home when appropriate opportunity.

And now comes the big disappointment. What a holiday Wine of the century came immediately or as "a wine to heroes testify" tasted, now tastes gruesome, barren and empty. Was the wine spoiled on the way home in the hot trunk or was it possibly faulty before? No, the only logical explanation is that it was not the wine that inspired us, but the wonderful ambience. Who does not know such examples with Italian (eg. Chianti - there are inevitably a quality range from "porridge to top wine" for around 7,000 producers, Greek (eg. Retsina ) or Spanish wines (eg Rioja - analogous to Chianti), as well as of course with Austrian (eg. Uhudler ) or German wines (eg Liebfraumilch ). An optimal one Weingenuss is also always dependent on occasion, company, mood and place.
