I finished an essay today so thought I would buy the bottle. If I had bought it from the bottle shop a bit further up the road I could have taken it back, but I bought it from the little supermarket and they wouldn't have known or cared what off wine was, so thought it was a bit of a useless exercise to try and return it.

Haha, why drink it if it doesn't taste good?



Its not aweful just not that good, I have drunk wine that was perfectly fine that I didn't really love the taste of, like really dry stuff, you still drink it.

Drink it with some strong blue cheese to take the edge off it.

I think I know whats wrong with it, from the 6 weeks I worked in a wine bottling factory, when they bottle it they put a specific amount of gas in the bottle and if the bottle doesn't fill up to the right amount it gets to much gas in it, thats why they wouldn't let us take the half filled bottles because the gas part would be out of whack. Someone had to stand by the machine and make sue the levels were right before it went on to be gassed and screw topped.

Don't know what the gas is though.

Methane. Traditionally vintners of old would have farted into the bottle themselves. Nowadays it's a machine connected to a cow's arse.

I actually had to go look it up, cause thats the sort of person I am and I found out it was nitrogen.

Sparging involves the introduction of very fine gas bubbles to help remove dissolved oxygen or CO2, or sometimes to add CO2.

Blanketing attempts to maintain a Nitrogen Gas layer above the wine surface in order to minimize the contact of air with the wine. To prevent the growth of aerobic microorganisms on the wine surface, the O2 concentration must be reduced from the levels found in air to less than 0.5% on the wine's surface.

Just prior to bottling, air must be flushed from hoses, filter housing pumps, and the fill bowl by using a displacement gas such as Nitrogen, since the amount of oxygen in wine can influence wine quality, stability, and longevity.
