Chile & Argentina Wine Tasting

March 04, 2010

A fantastic and very well attended tasting a couple of weeks ago. Many thanks to all our Friends who helped out.

We tasting some great new wines from Tabali our favourite of which was the Tabli reserva Especial Chardonnay:

Fresh, intense and complex, with mineral aromas and elegant hints of honey and citrus fruits. A touch of oak adds complexity without dominating the fruit and the finish is crisp, dry and flinty with wonderful balance.

We also enjoyed some old favourites from Cousino Macul and Concha Y Toro. The Cousino Isidora Riesling continues to be delightfully floral and pleasantly complex and the Cousino Macul varietals are always fantastic.

Los Gansos Pinot is still one of the best value Pinot Noirs we have come across and we can't fault it.

We also had some interested wines from Paisaje and Caberello. The Paiseaje Tupungato was actually the top selling wine of the evening.  The Weinert wines are always good and the Carrascal went down particularly well.

Overall it was a great tasting with some interesting new wines as well as many of our old favourites.
