Wine tasting and Spanish courses in July 2019
We are already in summer and the heat tightens. We are going to enjoy three international white wines
On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, we have an appointment with white wines at 7:30 p.m. at Instituto Hemingway
We will have a new opportunity to satisfy your curiosities about wines.
All students of Spanish courses are invited to participate in the tasting.
On this occasion we will learn about aromas and varieties related to white wines. Specifically, we are going to taste:
Txakoli Ieup - Txakoli from Bizkaia
We start with a wine that is produced very close to Bilbao. It is a fresh wine Pale yellow color with greenish edges, Ieup in a serious, slow txakoli, in which the herbaceous aromas give way little by little to the fruity and fennel aromas. The palate is soft but powerful, balanced and round. At the end of the mouth it gives us a bitter touch that gives it that seriousness with which it has been presented to us. It's a long, slow txakoli.
TOPF – Grüer Veltliner – Kamptal 2015.
Grüner Veltliner is the signature grape of Austria, and by far the nation's most widely planted wine grape. As Austria battles its way back to stardom on the international wine market, crisp, spicy Grüner Veltliner has been its flagship wine. The finest Austrian expressions come from vineyards above the Danube River, in Wachau, Kremstal and Kamptal.
Classic Grüner Veltliner wines show citrus aromas (lemon peel and grapefruit) complemented by stone fruit and fresh vegetal notes and the variety's trademark hint of white pepper.
Maria – feteasca Alba - 2017
Feteasca Alba is a grape variety that is used widely in parts of Eastern Europe, most notably Romania but also in Moldova, Hungary, Bulgariaand Ukraine. Feteasca means "maiden" in Romanian and is shared by three distinct varieties: Feteasca Regala (royal maiden), Feteasca Neagra(black maiden) and Feteasca Alba, or white maiden, which refers to the color of the grapes.
Feteasca Alba is the primordial form of Feteasca, from which the other two are believed to have evolved. Despite this, Feteasca Regala is the more widely planted of the two, as its wines have more complexity, but Feteasca Alba still makes dry, aromatic wines with stonefruit and tropical flavors. It can also be used in the production of sweet and sparkling wines, and is sometimes blended with other local varieties like Grasa de Cotnari.
