This week, we have: Hallo-Wine!
Wine is Adult Candy, right?
For this Tasting we are going straight to where Halloween is celebrated the best!- USA! USA!
We are bringing you some fun & tasty drops straight out of the great state of California.
All these are subject to change...but...here's the lineup!
- First up, we will start you off with Cartlidge & Browne, Chardonnay- North Coast; Flavours of Pear, Melon & light Citrus with aromatics of Straw, Lemon & Oak tones of Sweet Caramel & Hazelnut. 96% Chardonnay with 4% Muscat Canelli
- Secondly we have Fog Monster, Petite Sirah- Sierra Foothills, El Dorado County; A dense, youthful colour, typical of Petite Sirah. Concentrated aromas of dark Plum, Bramble & Allspice. The palate has a serious presence- full, textured & grippy, but with a vibrant , fresh & satisfyingly dry finish. Powerful, yet exceptionally balanced.
- Finally we will be trying a glass of Monte Rosso, Gnarly Vine Zinfandel- Napa Valley; Hailing from one of California’s Grand Cru Vineyards, this wine starts with intense aromas of rich Blackberry, Blackcurrant & Pepper aromas. The palate has striking power and breadth, with added Dark Plum. Fine Tannins & outstanding balance of power create a wine of poise & elegance.
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...should be an absolute spanker!!
