Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone’s had any experience of this wine or similar…? In particular, its drinking window.
I bought this bottle back in 2009 when I flew over to Ontario for my cousin’s wedding. I’ve been a bit complacent about its age (and storage), assuming that it’s basically indestructible and would happily outlive me, what with it being like 9,000 grams per litre residual sugar*. It’s darkened in colour a little over the years but there’s been no leakage as far as I can tell, and the little wax seal on top is intact.
I think the main reason for the delay has been that I’m the only one in the family who likes sweet wine, and I think opening this just for myself is asking a little bit too much of my metabolism.
Drink up, or is there no hurry?
*Or something like that. Just checked the back label - it’s 242g/l - still pretty hefty.
