(Abra)Kadarka the first Guerilla online tasting on 9 May 2019



There are ALWAYS morning tasting involved :sweat_smile:


Oh dear, that’s gonna be tough !


Oh, dear! I’ll follow my students’ example and submit mitigating circumstances, on the grounds of ‘palate fatigue’.


Generally I can get behind this sort of thing when required. I distinctly remember port not being as delicious as usual when tasted at 10am though.


So the wines are…

do not forget to order them with the Beaujolais, and save the date… 8pm on 9 May 2019


I really enjoyed the Heimann rosé last year , pity its no longer on the list.


I’m in hopefully. Hopefully because it’s still four weeks before I get home so have to hold off on the order!


The wines for the Bojo tasting are in so time to put together an order with them and the Kadarkas.


I’d definitely be up for this but for the fact I’m already at a tasting that night (Nebbiolo, yum!)

Have a good one, I’ll key an eye out for future tastings!



I will be popping my kadarka cherry…


All wines ordered for collection next week. Really looking forward to taking part.


Just bumping this so more can take the poll and get the wines for 8pm on 9 May 2019 (save the date). It is almost a case with the Bojo tasting wines…

EDIT - Bumping this again…
EDIT - Wines still available…


Thanks for organising this, it’s very much appreciated.

Looking forward to this and getting to know kadarka just a little bit better.


Have my kadarka (and beaujolais) on order now :yum:


Wines are still available, well in time for the event.

The Maurer just reviewed by Julia Harding (copied from TWS website)…

"Light orangey red. Sour cherry aroma, tangy sweet and sour cherry on the palate too. Soft but sufficient tannins, plenty of acidity and juicy and easy. Lots of easy pleasure. - Julia Harding "


And I noticed that the Heimann is featured in this month’s Decanter (the Weekday Wines feature), and a very positive review it is too! :+1:


Wine still available for this online tasting next Thursday if anyone is interested… or if anyone forgot to order them… could now be combined with the next #twstaste wines. This is how such a basket starts… spend £20-ish more to get free delivery.


Is there any recommendation as to whether these wines would benefit from opening/decanting several hours before tasting?


I think opening a few hours in advance will help as well as a very light chill.


It naturally gets a very light chill in my house at the moment! :wink:
