Season 2 Episode 2 – Wine Tips with Rachel Macalisang
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.
“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.”
“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!
