Crisis - wine left open overnight.

Knock it back!............as long as you can be pretty sure it hasn't been used as an ashtray (beer cans are most prone to this threat) or a spittoon (unlikely unless the originator had a particularly good aim) Smile

I often leave a glassful in the bottle to prove that I didn't drink a whole bottle - and then I have something to look forward to for lunch the next day Smile

Thanks all for your support through this difficult time. In fact I found a fruity Chablis in the fridge (unopened) and have just finished that (not alone I hasten to add!), and will perhaps now venture on to the suspect red...the Chablis was particularly fine though...

and then just to be sure there won't be any nasty aftertaste, open another bottle and have a glass from that.
..then you'll have to finish that one tomorrow Wink

Quote:I've just discovered that the wine bottle was left open last night (red, left at room temperature), half a bottle left, but just tried a bit and it tastes ok.

What do you think - would you drink wine that had been left without the cork in for a day?

definitely , tastes much better especially red

Quote:Oh phew. Thanks for reassuring me! I thought it might have oxidised.

If you can't tell - does it matter? Smile

I thought leaving wine in the bottle was actualy a criminal offence. Buying someone a 'wine stopper' is aiding and abetting.

The thing that always amuses me is when they write 'Once opened, consume within two days' on the label. Doesn't last two hours in our house Wink

Quote:Come on guys, let's get real here. Who on earth goes to bed with a bottle of wine half finished!.

Probably didn't have a problem with the first two bottles, just couldn't finish the third one.
