We love this because...

Literally a taste of Pieter’s subconscious this wine was created wiring him up to neural monitoring equipment and measuring his responses to 21 different wines. The finished article is taught, masculine red with plenty of blackberry and cranberry fruit and firm, meaty tannins – a true one off with only 120 bottles for Hong Kong.

The wine

Another of the wines from Pieter’s NeuroWine collaboration with Neural Sense this red offers the chance to taste the winemaker’s subconscious preferences. This is achieved by wiring Pieter up to equipment that measures brain responses, heart rate, pupil dilation and a host of other factors – he was then given individual wines to taste and his response to them was recorded. After tasting through all of the available barrels the numbers were crunched to determine which wines elicited the strongest response and would go in the final blend.

As Pieter himself said there was no way to cheat the system as by the time he thought about his response his reaction had already been recorded. The finished Limbic red is a blend of Swartland Syrah, Ceres Plateau Syrah, Robertson Grenache, Swartland Mourvedre, Swartland Carignan and Darling Cinsault – for more info on the whole experiment look here.
