BinEndsWine.com Spanish Wine Tasting Wrap-Up

The BinEndsWine.com twitter live Spanish wine tasting event turned out to be quite a lot of fun. Hopefully some of you got to follow along on-line!

Never mind that my party messed up the order of the whites – it doesn’t change anything that we ‘tweeted’ but it did probably confuse a few people in twitter-land. We were too buzzed to care, though…

I had originally hoped to include commentary directly from the twitter submissions, but there were just too many responses to be able to do this. So instead I thought I concentrate on what I (and my tasting partners-in-crime – Sugendran from WCDish.com & Heather Wright from Cellar Door Imports) thought to be the best wines of the night:

  • Best White: Pazo de Senorans Albarino 2007Take a grapefruit, stuff it with peach, soak it in alcohol, and sprinkle almond on top. Viola, you’ve got Pazo de Senorans Albarino 2007! This wine is absolutely killer, and the finish will kick your butt with tasty citrus for several minutes.
  • Best Red: Bodegas Mustiguillo “Mestizajes” 2005Heck of a lot of acidity for a red. It’s all Southern Rhone on the nose, but without the mousy-ness. It’s partially tank aged, with some of the wine seeing French oak barrels. Any way you slice it, the red fruits are balanced so well that this wine is a total steal for the $15 price tag.

So there you have it – some very tasty wines and a great deal of electronic cross-continent comradarie via twitter. I’m looking forward to doing this again!

Cheers!

    Nice summary – Chris here from Saltline Studio. I agree on all fronts, but especially the two best wines.

    This was a blast and I look forward to each of them monthly.

    Everyone that was at the office was pleased with the wine and the format…this is perfect for a group of people getting together and drinking wine.
