I loved this post. I have experience of tasting at ‘larger producers’ where the ‘host(ess)’ might suddenly throw in ‘exotic fruit’ and whilst I might nod in understanding, it’s not something I actually wrote myself – yet, how many other people tasted there? Why? The number of notes I subsequently read with ‘exotic fruit’ as a descriptor.
I’m pretty sure it’s a game that some producers play – a bonus going to the employee whose phrase was copied the most! 😉
