My weekly Taste a Quick Snapshot
It was Chile and Australia in the glass this past week. A 2010 Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Carmenere and a 2010 Chateau Tanunda Grand Barossa Riesling.
First up from Chile the Carmenere with its deep red/purple color and aromas of dark cherry, vanilla, pepper notes, blueberries and plum. Love the silky feel in the mouth. Creamy vanilla, dark ripe cherry, with hints of blueberry and oak. Perfect little pepper spice on the end. Big fan of this wine.
Up next the Australian Riesling which I will call the citrus queen. Aromas of lime zest, nectarine, fresh pear with hints of green apple. Light and crisp in the mouth with loads of lemon/lime, crisp green apple and melon. Paired perfect with chicken stir fry. One of my favorite Rieslings!
