Starting the weekend with a German and Argentine wines. I am really enjoying Willi Haag’s 2015 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett
on these warm summer evenings whilst the Colome Late Especial Malbec 2014
is something I bought back from Argentina with me on this trip home. The latter comes from the Valle Calchaqui in Salta from vineyards at 1700m, displaying all of the purity and freshness you get from wines grown at that height.
My notes were:
Haag - Clear and bright. Clear rim, green, gold hue. Clean nose. Intense nose. Lemons and limes. Hints of honey and petrol. Clean palate. High acidity. Off dry. Intense palate. Honeyed limes. Citrus. Medium finish. Great on a warm summer evening.
Colome - Clean and bright. Opaque centre, red/purple rim. Good legs. Clean nose. Intense nose. Chocolate, leather, black fruits. Hints of pepper and spice. Clean palate. Dry. Tannins balance by acidity and fruit. Rich, deep black fruit. Chocolate and leather. Intense. Long finish. Lovely wine.
