In a new feature within the Words, Wine and Women series, we expand on the wine tasting and wine notes with each sommelier with #winetips. Rachel Macalisang introduces our hosts to two selections of wine. Sawahime Junmai Ginjo sake and The Particular Garnacha Old Vine.

The garnacha is a rich red wine from San Valero winery. It is a bottle of The Particular Garnacha Old Vine, 2012. Tasting notes from the vineyards:

“Deeply cherry coloured, well covered, it has aromas of black ripe fruits, with balsamic hints and subtly spiced, given by its aging in barrels. On the palate, it has a powerful entry, juicy and very tasty, with good persistence of retronasal aroma, fruity and ripe.”

The sake has an aroma and taste of pears that are predominant on the palette with a medium body. Sawahime Junmai Ginjo is a sake from David Bowler Wine. Tasting notes from the vineyard:

“This sake has subtle aromas of green apple, green asparagus, melon, creamy tapioca, sweet pea, floral shop. On the palate comes fresh and pure flavors, medium body, dry to off dry, melon rind, dried pear, cashew, white pepper and an intriguing herbal, eucalyptus flavor, finishing with crisp acidiy.”

We want to know what you think of the wines as well. So pick up a bottle. Swirl, sniff and sip and let us know your #winetips for wine tasting!
