Holiday wine

Rather pejorative term for the quality of a wine that is associated with positive and delightful memories of a holiday. However, it is not uncommon for it to be a mass-produced wine for quick consumption. This was enjoyed in a rustic pub on the edge of a pine forest with a view of a bay in bright sunshine or at a romantic sunset with soft background music in the company of friends and/or the beloved partner and tasted phenomenal. The description of the "delicacy" is effusive in mainly hedonistic terms such as dreamlike, ravishing, overwhelming, mind-blowing and unforgettable. Still drunk on the wine and this happy experience, one buys not just one, but a whole case of bottles and looks forward to opening one of them at home when the opportunity arises and reminiscing.
