The Free Thursday Tasting: Taste Off-Australia vs. Portgual. Thursday 03/04/14
Hosted by Lee Isaacs & Aljoscha Wright.
The Oxford Wine Company, 165 Botley Road, Oxford, OX2 0PB.
Aljoscha and I decided that our original 'taste off' worked so well that it would become our regular theme for the free Thursday tastings. The countries we should represent would be drawn out of a spittoon at the end of each tasting just to add a little more spice. At this event I represented Portugal whilst Aljoscha had Australia. These are two countries we don't feature that often, I guess you could say that they are a little off our tasting radar!
A lot of fun and laughter was had (as always) as Aljoscha and I poked plenty of fun at each other and our respective countries. In the end Aljoscha had the upper hand especially with his white, the Grant Burge Sauv/Sem blend. Great fruit, balance and character and all at a good price!
