We talk about fruit in a wine all the time, and oak as well, and tannin for the sake of structure and ageability, but this week, the focus is on another element of wine that balances fruit and sugar and bolsters longevity as well as tannins do: it’s acidity. This week, we’ll taste four wines whose acidity makes them special, or is at the very least a significant factor. And we’ll talk about not only what the acid offers the wine, but what contributing factors boost the acidity to being with. And what’s more, we’ll taste its effects in red, white and pink wines to boot.
Our tasting will take place here at Feast, or if you’d rather, over Zoom from wherever you choose to be on Saturday.
You can reserve a seat or a set of samples by calling us at (520) 326-9363. The tasting begins at 2:00 on the 14th, and costs $15 plus tax and tip.
