Today’s wine is Sauvignon Blanc 2018 from Pays d’Oc, France.
I bought in super market in Hong Kong for around HKD100 with buy one get one free.
It’s refreshing and easy drinking dry white wine with aroma of lemon, lime, green apple and pear.
It’s inexpensive wine so you can either drink with dinner, make cocktail or use for cooking.
All works fine.
It’s nice to have something to drink in Friday night.
Yesterday, I joined a Foundations of Australian Wine course.
And got to try 6 wines from Australia.
- Jansz Tasmania Premium Cuvee
- Grosset Polish Hill Riesling
- Evans & Tale Redbrook Chardonnay
- De Bortoli The Estate Vineyard Pinor Noir
- Wynns Estate Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon
- Langmeil Valley Floor Shiraz
I liked Chardonnay from Margaret River the most.
And Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra was good too.
Other than wine tasting, we learned about wine history of Australia, climate, soils and characteristic of main wine regions in Australia.
I think it’s good to update wine knowledge once in a while and learn new things.
Today’s wine is Comenge from Ribera del Duero in Spain.
I love to drink Tempranillo wine.
Complex and good value for its quality.
It’s full body red wine with garnet colour.
It’s medium(+) intensity wine with medium(+) acidity and high tannin.
ABV is 14% however doesn’t feel so heavy.
Fruity wine with aroma of black berry, red cherry, plum, cassis and bell pepper.
It’s well matured and there is a hint of chocolate and earthy aroma as well.
I paired with western food at home such as steak, stuffed mashroom and garlic bread.
Today is Friday!
I tried Delaware wine from Kumamoto, Japan.
It’s my first time to drink Delaware grape variety wine.
It’s dry white wine of pale yellow green colour.
The intensity of wine is light with aroma of lemon, green apple and pear.
It’s very refreshing wine with good acidity.
Easy to pair with many different kinds of foods and quite nice.
Have a nice weekend everyone! Cheers~☺︎
