I have been drinking and tasting wine over 40 years now. I will add notes of wines I am drinking today and add some memories of years gone by. I was born in England and moved to Germany in 1975 where I discovered WINE. I started to drink German Spätburgunder about 10 years ago and have never looked back.
Riesling from Austria is another love of mine. My tastes are unlimited..across the Universe..so much good stuff around nowadays compared to when I first started out on this liquid journey!
Marking is the 20 Points system.
Back in the early part of the last century there was a comedian, dancer actor called Eddie Cantor.The spelling is completely different...but the name attracted me.
Kante La Bora di Kante Chardonnay 2006
Italy Delightful creamy texture...nutty...fresh acidity...lovely balance to
this wine...and opened up well in large glass. Almost forgot....smell
good as well. Oak not too dominant...very pure. Aged for 24 months in
old barrels then aged in bottle 5 years before release. Points 17.25
Ziereisen Gutedel Steingrüble 2012 Baden, Germany After
the '10 hoch 4' 2012...this is a step down of course...but then
again...costs only a 10th of the big brother. Salty, a touch
bitter...not negative...pears...loads of chunky minerals and some citrus
fruit. A little young maybe....but already giving good value. Points 16
Wittmann Riesling Kirchspiel GG 2012
'Kindermord' you could say...but I am on
