The Whistler GSM and Rocland Shiraz were wines I bought randomly on the strong reccomendation of a very passionate wine salesman at a local bottlo. I took his word for it as he seemed to know what he was talking about.

Well I must say, this was the first time in my wine drinking that I had to look twice in my glass to make sure I wasn't drinking a flat bacardi breezer.

Both wines had no integration, with very obvious flavours poking out at you like what teeny bopper fans do to get the attention of their favourite idol.

well you got the attention of my palate, and it tells me you are candy water rubbish.

And I quote the salesman

"The Whistler will blow you away, probably give Meshach a run for its money"

The whistle blew, blew me far far away from taking his advice ever again.
