Episode 49: Sucking on Stones

This week on The Crush podcast, Whitney and I are talking about that tongue-tantalising thing called taste. What it means to us, why it can be so darn elusive, and what the heck we’re talking about when we find minerality in wine.

Plus, I chat with the talented young wine writer (and Germany trip travel buddy) Talia Baiocchi about why flowery tasting notes fall flat.

Oh, and we also talk animals and booze:  sex-starved fruit flies turning to the bottle, why it’s funny and wrong at the same time to imagine getting a pomeranian drunk, and what happens when two drunk men run loose in an Australian Sea World (hint: it involves dolphins, sharks, and a fairy penguin called Dirk).

One of the many pics of me with my nose in a glass. This was in South Africa back in '09 when I was still fresh to the wine scene..I wonder how my tasting notes then would differ from now?
