Have you ever wondered why you like a particular wine style? Do you often refuse to step outside your comfort zone and choose different wines?
- Individual, physiological sensory sensitivity can vary dramatically: Genetics play a part in determining the range and intensity of sensations you experience so you will experience sensations differently to other individuals.
- Individual life experiences shape our personal preferences and sense of value: Think about it… Did you start to enjoy olives or anchovies after a trip to Spain? I know that my love of Mojitos came after drinking them on a holiday that was absolutely perfect in every way.
But Tim Hanni thinks we should broaden our taste buds, so he’s teamed up with Napa-based entrepreneur, Chris Cutler, to create a platform called myvinotype.com that assesses your taste sensitivities and tolerances, then introduces you to wines that will appeal to your unique, personal combination of sensitivities and values.
Just for fun, Russell and I did the short questionnaire together, we came up as SENSITIVE vinotypes.
Neither of us are sure whether our mother’s had particularly easy births… But we are certain that an approachable, food friendly Pinot Noir is perfect for us, just like our Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Noir.
You can take the test to discover your Vinotype HERE. It only takes a few seconds. Another way to tantalise your taste buds would be to invest in the Two Tails Mixed Case, available exclusively online HERE, (plus we deliver FREE within New Zealand)!
