Wines of Chile Blogger Tasting

I got another opportunity to participate in a Wines of Chile Blogger tasting tonight.  Tons of fun interacting via social media with wine bloggers around the world via the #BlogChile hashtag on Twitter.

For this tasting, all of the wine makers were available via webcast to describe their wines and participate in Q and A.  Nothing like interacting with wine makers while drinking their wine.. having them describe the process, the goal, and how they think they did.

Big theme for tonight was terroir.  One may think France, but all wine is of it’s place.  During the tasting, one of the wine makers (forgive me, I forget which one), described terroir as:

Soil, Climate, and Culture.

Well said.

12 wines in all during the tasting.  I will post on each one over the course of the next few weeks.

Wine #1: Vina Casablanca Nimbus Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2012.

Appellation:  Casablanca Valley

Notes:  Apricot and grass on the nose.  Very crisp and acidic, but also lots of structure and elegance.  Lots of complexity, will be a great food wine.  This is very good wine, and a great value.

Price:  $12.99

Rating:  4/5

(Wines were provided by the Thomas Collective.  There was no compensation, and my opinion is just that.  Mine.  If the wine is good, I’ll say so.  If it sucks, I’ll say that, too.  I already got the free wine.)
