Re: A guide to vintage whine
The premier whine labels nearly all seem to come from Chateau Whitefire. A confident and some say arrogant maker who's output guarantees fierce aguments among cogniscenti as to his merits. Each vintage has it's own characteristic and the most recent pressing is dry and even a trifle too sour for many.
It was hoped that the Whitefire label would mature and settle down as one of the great classic whines but sadly the product is too erratic and is prone to oxidisation especially when poorly stored. Bottles from this house should not be allowed too near the light until ready for consumption. One hesitates to compare whines to Tequila but a good dose of salt around the rim of a glass does wonders for the flavour.
