This Foodie Friday is all about WINE!!!
I attended a Vines-to-Wines Academy wine tasting at Bermudas (The Links at Stoney Point) and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
We were tasting white wines and this is a list of what we tasted and my opinion of each. We had a scorecard that we use to measure how we felt about different aspects of the one and I found this really helped me to be able to explain in wine characteristic terms what I thought of it.
Here are my notes:
Wine name: Riesling
Producer: Loosen Brothers, Germany
TOW Opinion: I thought this was lightly sweet and very aromatic. It was a light body with a fresh taste to it. I would say it was very flavorful with hints of lemon, lime, and green apple. It had a medium finish.
Wine name: Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Kim Crawford, New Zealand
TOW Opinion: This one was also aromatic with fruity, citrus fresh aroma. I thought it was dry and medium body. In terms of acidity, it was tart with a powerful shark bite to it. The flavors tasted were grapefruit and melon, with a long finish.
Wine name: Chenin Blanc
Producer: M-A-N family wines, South Africa
TOW Opinion: This had a moderate aroma intensity and smelled sweet with Honey notes. It was a medium sweet wine with a crisp taste. I tasted flavors of quince, apple, and citrus. Other people said they tasted tropical fruit. It had a medium finish.
TOW Final Word: My favorite was the Sauvignon Blanc. I loved the fresh citrus flavors and even though it was tart, it was not bitter.
If you get a chance to attend a Vines to Wines Academy wine tasting, you should go. It was very informative and helped me understand the nuanced flavor of wines.
