New World and Old World wine style tasting – Minneapolis

5.25pm, Saturday 25th Feb, South 6th Street, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

Afternoon, folks – just in from the ice air outside after a terrific tasting over at the new – open for only 14 days – Eat Street diner in South Minneapolis. We did something a bit off the wall with our Yalumba wines: compared and contrasted to similar things from the Old World – specifically France – that we’ve pretty much used for inspiration when it comes to making these wine styles.

I have notes and will put them up tomorrow, but here’s what we did:

    Y to the fore — head to head and no judges required ! no doubt based around style rather than pricing. The Brune et blonde et Guigal was always good as long as someone else was paying !

  2. i would say the shiraz viognier is by far one of the greatest wines i have tasted

  3. It was a fascinating, eye opening, and wonderful tasting. Let’s just say there was a roomful of people that had to pick their chins up off the table during the event. Many thanks to Jane for the commentary, stories, tasting opinions, and laughter. You hit it out of the park on the Condrieu dissecting the winemaking style.

    There wasn’t a dog in the bunch. What was beautiful was each wine was truly showing as it should and at its best. Spending a relaxing afternoon with friends and customers comparing great wines like this is an awesome way to enjoy a day.
