part of the monthly threesome from
cheers.co.il wine club.
wines i didn't pick but are supposedly choosed according to my taste.
i let my son cover them in tinfoil then i open and try to guess.
this one is a north Portuguese white blend made from three indigenous varieties :
bical, cercial and sercialinho
medium + to full body with mostly citrus variety and hinted stone fruit.
it's power and lack of tropics made me guess it's 🇫🇷 sauvignon blanc. but its so sharp i was thinking chablis is another option.
it's so balanced i thought maybe some oak sorted it all out.
i was confused but impressed.
impressive punch all in all.
paired well with medicore Asian take away of sushi, pad thai and plain white rice.

Vintage 2014 | made from Auxxerrois by Abi Duhr. Big, big surprise! This stood out next to a archetypical Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet. Appealing nose with butter, pear and minerals. Great balance. Fine food pairing with potted shrimp. By far the best wine I have had from Luxemburg. Only 500 bottles made in a year, this is certainly a wine to search for. — 21 hours ago
My last bottle, and tonight it performs very well. Maybe it’s just sentimental.
Ripe red and blue fruits, with round and mouthwatering acidity. The body is lush and viscous. Long bitter sweet finish.

Incredibly good for 2011!! Spot on varietal correctness and quite nice balance from the deft touch in the cellar/crush pad. Bravo Maggie and Mark!! — 13 days ago

Light body, chocolate & berries. A lovely drinkable Pinot Noir. Though young. Great for the price. — 2 hours ago
A showstopper of a wine. One of the best I’ve tasted for a long time. — 3 hours ago
