Your Vinotype Profile

Hypersensitive Vinotype

As a Hypersensitive Vinotype, you are toward the top end of the scale in terms of your sensory sensitivity. In general, you tend to be picky—so you may not want to stray too far from the wines you know you love, and the more adventurous of you love to explore and discover all sorts of new wines but with very clear preference parameters.

It is very likely you cut the tags out of your clothes and may have a really hard time finding the right sheets and/or pillowcases. Other people turn the television or stereo up too loud for you and the thermostat is almost never right! You are also quite likely to be a tea lover. It is also very likely your mother had morning sickness with you (and if you are a male it is almost guaranteed)! You most likely played solo sports, but if you were on a team, you were often times the captain or leader.

Your wine preferences run toward more delicate, dry wines with lower alcohol levels. Reds have to be especially rich and smooth for your highly sensitive sensory perception.

The more content Hypersensitive Vinotypes tend to favor the Pinot Grigio, Riesling and often have a penchant for Petit Sirah, Zinfandel and Merlot. The more adventurous Hypersensitive Vinotypes love exploring Riesling, Alsatian varieties, Albariños and tend to “talk dry but drink sweet.”

If you’re a Hypersensitive Geek, you hate high points, decry the movement towards higher alcohol as it burns too much for their palates and are champions of wines that display delicacy and finesse.
