Ocean water is considered living water (mayim chayim) by the rabbis.
Maybe the life force in the water did it!
Next we’ll be seeing “ocean aged” wine for sale on store shelves.
It’s true, I’ve had an occasion to try it. The wine’s tastes a bit salty, though.
If the wine is made in Napa, why did they have to go all the way to SC to put it in the ocean? Wasn’t the Pacific good enough for them?
Though there may be a difference, I consider this to be basically a publicity stunt, like Harley Davidson trying to patent the potato-potato sound or Makers mark reducing their alcohol content slightly to increase production.
The two examples worked remarkably well. And this company got their name out there effectively with this.
Wonder if we lowered Libs into the ocean for three months if there would be incredible differences.
An electromagnetic field might also be in play.
The Norwegians age Akavit by putting it into casks then keeping it in the hold of a cargo ship for 1 year. Again, constant temperature.
Why the Atlantic?
Please don’t take this as a slam against this post it is meant as a comment on wine reviews in general. No offense intended.
Reading reviews about wine is like reading an art or movie or play critic’s review and attempting to make any logical connection between the words used and the subject.
Jammy? Sure, OK, I can understand that and imagine the taste.
Fruit-forward??? WTH is the chemical formula for producing Fruit-forward and just what have they failed to convey to a normal human being assuming they are describing a taste. Does this contribute to glo-bull warming/cooling.
Relaxed?? Again, just what chemical formula produces relaxed and what does that do to ones tongue?
I get the impression they are just attempting to impress a limited few snobs who would not dare to dispute the Relaxed taste or if the Fruit was forward or reverse.
Under full disclosure I have to admit to committing the ultimate Wine Faux Pas in France a few years back where the buss boy at our table nearly went spastic when we were willing to try a Wine which had just been released to the market and was suggested by our waiter.
He went ballistic because we were having fish and it was a red wine. Oh the humanity. You would have though we were mixing matter and anti-matter and I am not exaggerating.
I’m partial to the south Pacific myself.
OK, let me get this right. You lower something in a cage in to the the oean and you leave it there for 3 months and that makes it better?
And we need to make the IRS better?
Hey, I have an idea!
Charleston is where the Ashley River and the Cooper River unite to form the Atlantic Ocean.
Or so I've heard.
I put a six pack of beer in the creek....It tasted like semi-cold beer?
“Both were fruit-forward and jammy”
But I like my wine ass-backward and clammy!
That is crazy! But.. it totally makes sense! Love it and want to try it!
