If you are a wine lover, I know where we will go when you come and visit !
Last Friday I went to this Wine Tasting at this super neat place called The Wine Loft .
Below are the wines we tried and the notes that a new friend, Libby, took . The funniest comment.. The swiss don't like Swiss Wine. It was a really wonderful evening filled with good wine and new friends!
1. Schlossgut Diel, Reisling, 2000, Germany
"Fruity, tropical, dry."
2. Weingut Robert Weil, Riesling, 1999, Germany
"Fruity and dry also, but a year older, and you can taste the change in the wine. It has a stone flavour (if you imagine a moist stone on a hot day in your hands), and a slight petrol aftertaste.
You wouldn't drink this with food. It would be on its own with you reading a book in a hammock on a hot day."
3. (didn't get the name or date), Switzerland
"The Swiss don't drink their own wines."
4. Petit Castel, 1999, Israel
"Gritty, and you can start to taste the new flavours which come as it gets older. Truffle, and dirt in the forest. Also like a horse."
(Although on consideration maybe he meant good to drink if you're eating horse?)
5. (didn't get the name), 2005, Spain
"No corners, soft, round, good with pasta"
6. Monta Peloso, Toscana, 2004, Italy
"Darker, stronger; smooth, good for vegetarian food, or red meat, venison."
Big Kiss to all
