(Abra)Kadarka online tasting [ARCHIVED - 9 May 2019]

tasting

#61

I agree with @Embee it has a lovely silky sweet texture.


#62

Wow who said rosehip? I wouldn’t have caught that on my own but that’s it!

Girlfriend gets Marmite!


#63

There’s definitely tannins, they’re just very well integrated :wink:


#64

I just held a mouthful for rather longer and yes, they are there. Integrated yes, but also I gather Kadarka is very low on tannins anyway.


#65

Anyone else get a strong saline finish?


#66

Funnily enough its great for under your eyes!.. The Rosehip not the wine :laughing:


#67

It reminds me of a tamarind sweet from childhood. Oddly evocative wine.


#68

Must be the cheese…


#69

Yep - agree with the saline finish


#70

Delicate in a very good way


#71

Moi aussi :+1:


#72

I think I know what you mean. Something I only had once, abroad, but the flavour stuck with me.


#73

Now that you mention it, there is definitely a mineral freshness to this. I’m liking this more and more as it opens up.


#74

Ideas for food pairing with this??? What does everyone think??


#75

171 bottles left…


#76

Duck breast rubbed with 5 spice


#77

It’s quite light and delicate (coming from a Bordeaux lover) so maybe lighter less strongly flavoured stuff. White fish? Sole?


#78


#79

Yes, cola, good shout.


#80

I really have this sweet/salt thing going on now, but not in a way I recognise. Salted blackberry cooler. And now I’ve got a chilled glass, it has a slight sptritz almost.

Girlfriend isn’t loving it.
