Tasting Notes Week Ending June 29, 2012


2010 Chateau Dereszla Tokaji Dry

On the nose, a curious scent of ripe peach, and on the palate very dry and mineral with a crisp focused mineral finish. 85% Furmint, 10% Harslevelu, 5% Muscat. 8-% Stainless steel in tank with 20% of the barrels aged in oak for six months. Really enjoyed this wine – in a blind tasting could almost be confused with a Chablis due to its acidity.

2010 Carmen Gran Reserva Carmenere

Rich and vibrant, delicious wine with red and black fruit flavors … tannic with some black peppercorn, and a smooth yet assertive texture. Tobacco leaf.  Grown on granitic soils in the Apalta region of Chile’s Colchagua Valley.
