Splendid Wines with low Alcohol:
Not to repeat what so many others have already said, but it is widely
apparent that increasing numbers of wines out there are boasting higher
alcohol levels than ever before.
The reasons for this (?): Consumer preference? Global warming? Better (or worse) winemaking techniques?
For my part, I do believe there does exist too much alcohol in many wines I have tried. This, of course, is not to suggest that only
wines with moderate amounts of alcohol are ones of notable quality;
only that a specific wine in question ought to be able to 'handle' the
amount of alcohol it contains.
And so, this week I am happy to offer wine enthusiasts a few
suggestions on a couple of wines that are not overly-dosed in alcohol.
