These month are the time of wine regions’ wine competitions. In the last few weeks I took part of some of them and it was so instructive for me, and not just the wine, but the attitude of the judges.
One of the difference in the reviews was the use of the barrel, and therefore the style of the wine. Some homegrown variety lose its characteristic by the wood, or could not show the terroir. In Hungary we can taste wines which go agains the trends, and not just the light, easydrink and young ones, and I think it is good!
Next month Winelli started a survey, to measure how wine consumer think about it. Coming soon for details!
Long break, but my excuse is lot of work and experience with wines, which kept away from my computer and from worldwideweb. I m coming from the most beautiful items, to share with you.
First beauty is a Rose from Mátra Historical Wine Region (Otherwise Mátra is our highest mountain which saves the southern slopes.)
The wine won a silver medal in VinAgora International Wine Festival in June. (The jury is composed of highly experienced individuals who have a long background in judging samples at international wine competitions.) The truth is this bottle didn’t get to me intentionally. I tasted it by coincidence, but the random will be the greatest success, won’t it?
Smell is so deep with raspberry orgy, they had to say me to “hurry” taste because it warm up, but I would have been with fragrance long-long time… I felt as inside my nose became rose colour… as I would sniff its colour. Beautiful! Taste is also deep, and my picture from the bottle is not the best because its colour is more darker! The depth of this rose grabbed me, want to drink it everyday.
