I remember reading lately about how some wine experts couldn’t tell the difference between white and red wine during a blind tasting. Not sure if that’s true, but colour does influence how we taste things. Take this blue chardonnay by Marqués de Alcantara. The other day a barman in Jerez was very insistent about me trying it, so what the heck, I gave it a go. But although it actually tasted okay I decided I didn’t want to drink a whole glass of it. Somehow the colour and taste just didn’t go together in my mind. Weird, eh?
