LIVE! #TWSTaste: Fine Wine Small Wonders, 8-9pm

#41

I think mine’s a touch too cold for the nose to show its best.

Now, the name of the wine is suggesting that I stick it somewhere warm…


#42

Ooh, I like it! I can see what you mean too. I’m also starting to understand @Herbster’s idea of the rice cracker!


#43

I was wondering who would be the first to point that out! :rofl:


#44

Wow, quite a bit of colour on it — mid gold. Interesting nose — I’m finding it moderately pronounced: floral (honeysuckle, apple blossom), tart apple (& apple tart), a bit of lime zest, peachy, stone & slate, a little struck match.


#45

It has some similarities to a developed chenin on the nose.


#46

Big shouts for pineapple in this house. And hay.

Rice cracker comes off the yeast we reckon.


#47

We think evolving as it warms up… stewed pear


#48

Ah yes, maybe that’s why mine seems so expressive to me - ours hasn’t been massively fridgeified, so I hope it’ll blossom a bit more in the glass for those of you who aren’t getting all that much.


#49

Right, go on - I know you’re all dying to taste! Let’s see what you think…


#50

Mrs CC: getting a bit of honey now as well


#51


#52

definitely savoury but we’re getting peach and apple as well


#53

Great fruit acid balance, some of us think very similar to chardonnay… agree peach and apple


#54

So you like it?:wink:


#55

Yum. I think all the nice things that I’m missing from the cold nose are coming through on the finish.

Nice bit of tang on the palate. Is there a smidge of residual sugar there too…?


#56

I can see why Meursault gets a namecheck in our note - ample, buttery and textured - but there’s a saltiness to the finish too that I really like.


#57

Ahh yes, the finish is fanning out like a… erm, sheep’s tail?


#58

Juhfark 2015: flambéed pear with a caramel and liquorice touch , honey again and the bitterness of hazelnut skins, full bodied and textured like a Pinot Gris.


#59

Apple and hint of vanilla. Lovely zesty acidity and a nice long finish.


#60

Must be shear pleasure.
