Three wines that were disappointing this weekend. First was a Blush from Neuquén, which we drank with picardos in Puerta Madryn
Second was a Pinot Noir from the same province, which did not meet the expectations we had for this wine - dud bottle?
The last was a Viognier from Mendoza’s Valle d Uco. We have add this before six months ago
My notes were:
Humberto Canale Blush:
Clear and bright. Deep salmon. Clean nose. Medium intensity. Floral, Raspberries, rose petals, violet sweets. Clean palate. Off dry. Medium acidity. Raspberry cordial. Hints of pear. A simple blush wine that offers very little.
Saurus Select Pinot Noir:
Clear and bright. Medium red centre, pale red rim. Clean nose. Medium intensity. Red fruits. Clean palate. Dry. Medium acidity. Restrained fruit. Quite austere. Disappointing after tasting the same wine at the vineyard. Short finish. Perhaps it’s the bottle - going through a dull phase?
Alma Austral Viognier:
Clear and bright. Clear with green highlights. Clean nose. Medium, low intensity. Floral, stone fruits, peaches. Clean palate. Good acidity. Dry. Peachy fruit but no depth. Slightly ‘hard’ finish. Since tasting this the first time we have been drinking better quality whites and this has shown when revisiting this.
