What’s in the glass tonight April 5th

Corbans White Label Cabernet  Merlot

Corbans White Label Cabernet Merlot – $

This volume product is so devoid of origin it doesn’t show the producer’s name clearly on the label – you have read the fine print – and no vintage. That’s a first. And on the back label it turns out to be wine from Australia. Sneaky…

Still, I had it in the house now, and should try the wine and comment, because truckloads of it are sold in every supermarket in the land…

Correct varietal colour. No real nose that I can detect. A soft and flabby fruit bomb, with no discernable tannins. The label says dry, but I say sweet. I know wine is ‘made’, but this feels more concocted than most. I assume to be non-threatening to those consumers new to red wine, or upgrading from cask?

Not what I am looking for.

Luckily for me I didn’t buy a bottle of the Chardonnay version too; that might have really crushed my spirit…
