(Abra)Kadarka online tasting [ARCHIVED - 9 May 2019]

tasting

#101

Me seven, too…


#102

6/10 for me - very interesting wine and different from my usual style, but have struggled with it a bit…


#103

Moving on to the Maurer now


#104


#105

I so WANT to like it, and I’ve certainly enjoyed Kadarkas in the past, so I’m looking forward to seeing what the other bottle is like. I do find this one alluring, but it just doesn’t tickle me.


#106

Sameish colour, a tad more orangey


#107

I can’t fault this for the outlay. For its QPR alone it’s gotta be a 9.


#108

This next one is the exact colour of how I like my Ribena, should anyone need to make me a glass in future.


#109

Love the colour of both these wines. The Maurer slightly more orange.

Maurer seems more expressive and fruity on the nose than the Heimann.


#110

Smells a bit like Irn Bru otherwise struggling at the mo


#111

Lovely colour again.

Wow. What is that on the first whiff??


#112

Getting plums on the nose


#113

I’m getting sweet shop and wood varnish. In a good way.


#114

Agree with plums. Rhubarb anyone?


#115

Hint of VA anyone else?


#116

You and me both - it’s exactly right. A bit paler than the Heimann. When it was pouring it looked almost like a rosé!


#117

Granted this has been decanted for quite a while and is also a bit chilled, the first whiff for me brought up an image in my head of eating strawberries in a highly chlorinated hot tub :thinking:… that then gave way to aniseed balls or the coconut liquorice allsorts with smashed strawberries …. I may be going mad however :rofl:


#118

That might be my varnish!


#119

Ooh rhubarb, yes spot on.


#120

Your VA, my chlorinated hot tub :rofl::laughing:
