This thread has certainly taught me a lot on natural wine, something which has progressed significantly since I last was truly into wine. I do understand how the likes of tasting notes sound pretentious to the uninitiated, but they are useful descriptors. Anyway, as noted by others there is a slight irony that somebody is being criticised for pretentiousness regarding this on a fashion board

It was super tropical tasting, the main note most people picked up was passion fruit. Nice difference compared to conventional NZ Sauvignon’s.

What options are there regarding natural wine for those of us who like unsubtle Shiraz and Zinfandel? I prefer flavour over deftness

I’d also recommend starting with some Carignan, “L’Oublié” by Mas Coutelou is my favourite, or something from Roc des Anges who do big, smokey Syrahs.

You did indeed respond to that specific question. Mea culpa
