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



Both wines are refreshingly different and a real good choice for a tasting. I’m preferring the Maurer, just. 7.6!


Very curious sweetish nose and sour edge to the taste, more evident the longer your swirl it around… Interesting!


I upgrade the Heimann to 8, the Maurer is a 6 for me


Goes well with pork chipolatas


I’m with you ! Heimann has the edge for me .


Having never had kadarka before, it’s been great fun to taste and think about it - with a soundtrack too!

I stick with Heimann 6 and give the Maurer 7


Maurer wins here so it scores, er, more than the Heimann!


I’ve poured another Heinmann sample …


Very definitely prefer the Heimann. I sadly suspect the remainder of the Maurer might be used in cooking. But the Heimann I’m very taken with.


Let’s see who edges it

7.5 for the Maurer for me. sticking with a 6 for the Heiman.


I think the Heimann was lovely, with more of a vanilla, leather note that one might expect in a red wine, while the Maurer was much more unique for me and would be lovely with some cold charcuterie on a hot summer’s day… Here’s hoping!

7.5 for the Heimann and 7 for the Maurer for me.


OH: Well, I refilled the glass with the Maurer.


Really good idea for a tasting @szaki1974 and well run!
Same grape, same country, even same sort of light red style … but two very different wines!
Looooove that we don’t all agree a favourite too :slight_smile:


I’ve always been a robust Bordeaux/Rhone/Rioja wine drinker. But more recently I’ve been working on getting into lighter, more subtle wines. The (non-mondeuse) Savoie wines I’ve been drinking over the winter, the recent Beaujolais tasting and now this are all expanding my horizons somewhat. You never know I might start likeing Burgundy soon!


Maybe before WW1…


Isn’t the Maurer from Serbia?


Yeah, back of the Maurer bottle says Serbia, but I get the impression from the blurb that it’s just a wee bit over the border…?


Thanks @szaki1974 for starting the very first #Guerillatasting ! I’m up for more . Welldone on the intro, very impressive ,:wink:


OH: Actually they’d both be nicer sitting in the sun on a warm evening. It’s like the arctic here though. They aren’t winter wines for me.
