It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

Slightly fizzy, low alcohol (9.5% ABV), with 15 g of residual sugar. Sounds like a wine to be avoided....but, it is a decent wine, Simple, yes (it is only $12), but the sweetness is not cloying thanks to the crisp acidity, there are no off-flavours, it is pleasant. In short, it is as it is intended to be - a light wine for sipping (or gulping) without contemplation on a hot day without getting hammered (or at least, only slowly). Tasted Aug 2021.
