So. We spent the morning at a coffee tasting, and the afternoon at the BRITEs (Abel Pharmboy’s, not any other).
Bora’s nose can be incredibly useful
Now we are about to indulge in a wine tasting, whilst admiring Isis’ latest shoe:
The wines are provided by The Wine Authorities.
First up: a couple of Chardonnays, from France and California. The French is lighter in colour. PalMD thinks the Californian is closer to a scotch than a wine: too much oak (from the barrel). As with the coffee this morning, I find I don’t have the vocabulary to describe the wines.
The white wines
Next (in a moment) the reds
Oh. We’re now being live cast, apparently. I wonder where…
Now the reds. Two Pinot Noir. Amarosa (California) and ??? Valley (Oregon). The Oregon wine vinyard is owned by the offspring of the guy with the second greatest number of US patents.
I don’t like the Californian – too many tannins (apparently). The Oregon wine is really nice.
(ah, livesteam here!)
