SHAPING YOUR TASTE

by Brian Hanna

Are you a synesthete? Do you feel vibrations, sense shapes, see colours, or hear sounds when tasting a wine?

By definition, it’s the stimulation of one sensory pathway that leads or triggers automatic responses in a second sensory pathway. Can we experience wine by using a black ink pen and draw what we perceive as the shape of wine. Alright then, let’s try!
Get out a large drawing pen and coloured markers and have your spouse or partner brown bag the bottle of wine to be drawn. I asked my winery colleague, Melanie Cooke, to draw our yet to be released VQA 2013 Pinot Gris. This is what she came up with.

Pinot Gris 1

Our VQA 2013 Pinot Gris is 100% County fruit. It is very unique in that 40% was aged in french oak barrel and 60% in stainless steel tank.

Look for this wine’s eminent release in autumn 2015.
