Today we became the first wine writer in the world to taste the @jacobscreekwine Double Barrel Chardonnay. .
Why is this wine important? It’s the first white wine ever to be crafted where the wine was fermented in Whisky barrels. Who cares I hear yoiu ask. Well, in the era where winemakers are always trying to push the envelope by tricking up their Chardonnay - it’s considered a true innovation. The Chardonnay is fermented in ex Chivas Regal barrels, which actually gives the wine undertones of malt, alongside the lusious melon and peach flavours. Try it when it gets released across the globe next month!!

New World 🌍 Old World 🌍 Taste Different? 🌎
Thank you to @bruja40 as he shows us his beautiful decanter and the aerating of his bottle of wine. If you are drinking New World or Old World wine we love decanting @LTD. 👍🏻🍷
Do Old World wines taste different than New World wines? Yes, they often do. The differences in Old World and New World wines come from winemaking practices (tradition) and from the affect of the land and climate on the grapes (“terroir”).
* Old World wines are often described as tasting lighter, having less alcohol, having higher acidity and tasting less fruity.
* New World wines are often described as tasting riper, having higher alcohol, having less acidity and tasting more fruity.
Despite these common descriptors between New and Old World wines, there are plenty of exceptions to the rule. This is because winemakers have a fair amount of control when it comes to affecting how a wine will ultimately taste. Call it a winemaking preference if you want, but many Old World regions have rules and regulations that dictate winemaking practices which ultimately decides a wine’s style.

#winewednesday look back at a few of my fave reds from a few Rhone 2016 en primeur tastings. Vieux Telegraphe described 2016 as amazing as 1978 and 2010. My teeth and lips were so purple afterwards but worth it because the wines were truly spectacular!

What’s your favourite Champagne? It’s a question asked quite often here on Insta but I’m dying to know 🍾🍾⠀
This corker (see what I did there?) by @champagnemoutard Pere et Fils is a charming bottle of fizz, and the bottle’s so pretty!⠀
It’s made from a lesser-known Arbane grape. In fact, it’s so rare, only around a hectare is left in France.⠀
It’s a very delicate Champagne, with apple and citrus flavours and a mild brioche aroma. The bubbles are small and plentiful, making it a very easy-going fizz. In what has historically been quite a common theme with me, I should’ve kept hold of it for a little longer, but it still tasted good enough to me and the memory will live through the bottle which is now displayed in my living room! 🍾 📷 by @london_wine

A truly unique experience that is loved by many who come to Waltz Vineyards - only available at our vineyard location!.

Wine of the week: Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio) is usually delicately fragrant and mildly floral with lightly lemon-citrus flavors. Pinot Gris can be tangy and light, or quite rich, round and full-bodied. Contact us to learn how you can make your own Pinot Gris!

A highly pleasurable and intense varietal personality and character. The nose shows enchanting sensations of mint, sweet spices, black berry fruit, tobacco, and toasted coffee. The palate is rich in velvety textured and supple tannins, long and persistent, but vibrant and bracing in style as well. #matarocchio I just love it! 💘🍷

This is how The Restaurant at Leoness does Cajun Shrimp! Perfectly paired with our member’s favorite White Merlot...Get ready for a flavor explosion.💥 • Cajun Shrimp - Tomatoes, garlic, shallots, lemon juice, white wine and Cajun spice mounted with butter (*GF) • 2016 CS White Merlot • Winemaker Notes: Harvested from several select vineyards, our 2016 White Merlot was allowed to macerate on the skins for a short period of time, picking up its light pink color while extracting delicate fruit characteristics. A long, cool fermentation led to a wine bursting with delicious aromas and flavors of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and cherries. • Award Wining Restaurant at Leoness • Open: Monday-Thursday 11:30 AM-4:00 PM Friday 11:30 AM-9:00 PM Saturday 11:30 AM-9:00 PM Sunday 11:30 AM-6:00 PM

(Cheesy...just go with it.) 😉Thank you so much @chambordchannel and @socialsouphq for inviting me to such a gorgeous event! (It didn’t take much convincing to get my husband to accompany me ☺️🌸🥂)
