Generously pouring this wine into a glass, I realised Golden Oak wine is always very cordial looking. Obviously you don’t expect an $11 wine to be a work of art, but when using it while dining alfresco, looks are a huge thing. By alfresco dining, I obviously mean drinking on my porch, sitting on a stool. Don’t get me wrong though, it is definitely worth a purchase. On the palate the wine is very mild, elegant and engaging. Perfect for parties full of people you hate. This wine goes down with ease, now you can escape their painful chats about their depressing lives and disappointing children.
Originally you were not so cynical, but the years have caught up and now you would love to forgo any type of party or social gathering. It was the marriages that did it, 8 is too many. Oh, that drama kills. 34 children between them. That’s a lot of mouths to feed - that’s a lot of balls to kick.
Many times you wondered if it was a mistake. “Another marriage can’t hurt,” you said with sarcasm. Eventually you became addicted to the rush. That wedding day, the excitement, you were aware distrust and disappointment were yet to come, but on that day it was perfect. You sauntered individually down the aisle. All eyes were on you and that is how you liked it. Next, a craving - sushi. Until you could eat that foreign delicacy, you couldn’t get your mind back in the game. Finding tofu, mouth met food. You forgot about your original craving, kissed, and became Mr and Mrs Capsicum.
Don’t worry about your surname, you tell yourself. No one thinks about it. But they do, it’s a dud. Risking the relationship you tell this to your partner. You break up. Now you can begin looking for yet another partner. The wedding cycle continues and will continue until your death day. Lucky.
While you might be asking yourself, what does that story have to do with the delicious wine? Sorrow has many faces, just like a box of wine. 6 to be exact. But what resides inside these faces is the truth, it is life, it is wine. So overall I want to say that this wine is okay, I would go as far to say it’s quasi terrific. However, there are many other wines in the same price range I would be buying first. Not everyone has the same taste, so try it and tell us what you think. Only if you’re the reviewing type.
