This Unusual Wine Has a Gasoline Tasting Note
October 14, 2014
Bubblegum, green apple, pineapple, peach and…petrol? Uproot Wines doesn’t shy away from describing its wines' tasting notes, even the bizarre ones. In fact, the company designed a special “flavor palette” label (below) that displays the flavors in colorful graphs right on the front of the bottle.
In Uproot's six wine varieties you can taste everything from watermelon Jolly Ranchers and toasted marshmallows to Cuban cigars and yes, even gasoline. The more dominant the note, the larger the color block appears on the label.
Petrol, used to describe Uproot's Grenache Blanc, isn't as unappetizing as it sounds.
