Wine with valves?

12 posts in this topic

Wandering around the supermarket today I came upon an inexpensive Pinot Grigio.

The name? Primaluna.

Now I looked really hard but could see no valves in the wine itself.

Made me wonder if they use valves in the manufacturing process.

There was no mention. :?

It made me think how this wine might taste.

Probably very palatable and smoother than most. I would think there was also a lack of sharpness.

I suppose a lot depends on what valves are used.

EL34 vintage - smoother......KT88 - sharper with a more open taste.

:run:

It's a very unusual white wine, as it warms up it tends to glow and turn to a red, but warm it too much and .............................

well who knows, does wine burn?

I wouldn't bother with it Al, u will only end up putting it in different glasses swearing one tastes better than the other, then realizing its a bit too sharp and moving back to a flute glass! Swapping corks and screw tops, trying it with fizzy water for a spritzer and trying to get Mrs B involved but really she only nods and smiles to humor u :)

By the time uve done all this u will be so pissed u will bang into the table in the middle of the room, spill ur glass on ur Leben and wake up on the floor with one of those LV's!

What a vivid imagination you have Danny. Have I released a jocular streak in these Wammers?

Vaughan speakers (check their site) are named after wines.

Only heard the Cabernet at Scalford last year and it tasted...I mean sounded superb.
