A trip around the world

We all agree that France is the master when it comes to wine making, with their 459 appellations distributed on 1250 geographical denominations. The rest of the world is not that far behind actually. For instance, South Africa is doing very well in terms of making process but also in terms of selling wine around the globe. We, at Caviste Authentique have around 10 wines coming from that region from different wine cellars. For example the wine Alvi’s Drift Viognier 2015 which is a 100% Viognier wine from the wine cellar 25-50 Wine Latitude. This is a french grape variety which has been used in South Africa. The interesting part is the differences we can notice by using the same cépage (grape variety) as the French name it, and a different terroir. The aromas are dominated by peaches and apricots with a silky texture and freshness at the end palette. A red wine from South Africa which is done using a french grape variety is the Tamboerskloff Syrah 2012, 100% Syrah, from the wine cellar Soif d’ailleurs. This wine is well balanced with some notes of smokiness coming from a cigar, but yet still fruity with round tannins. Let’s get back on our spaceship and move to Croatia, a country in Eastern Europe. The wine Zlatan Posip 2013 is a white wine made from 100% Posip. Generally a light bodied wine, with a vibrant acidity and aromas of white flowers. This wine is proposed by the wine cellar Soif d’Ailleurs. For the red wine lovers Caviste Authentique wants to share a wine Plavac Mali 2011 which is 100% Plavac Mali. The characteristics of this grape variety are high in alcohol content with a good amount of tannins, black cherry notes followed by peppery notes and smokiness. This wine is presented on our website by the wine cellar Soif d’ailleurs. Now let’s compare two Riesling wines from different countries. There will be changes in the tasting and on the palette since the soil type, weather and conditions are different. For instance, Silver Riesling Late Harvest 2013 from the wine cellar Haguefen-World Wines coming from Israel. Here we note differences in the viscosity and on the nose too. This wine unveils aromas such as pear, peach, even some wooden notes followed by a touch of vanilla and caramel-most likely coming for barrel aging. On the other hand, we have the Haus Klosterberg Riesling 2014 coming from Germany, from our wine cellar Cave Crus Paris. On the nose this wine is fruity and on the end palette a slight acidity is marked which is refreshing. Japan a country known for Sake and now for wine too. The wine cellar Soif d’ailleurs proposes a Koshu Shimoiwasaki 2015 made with 100% Koshu, with European origins. This grape variety has a fruit aromas on the nose with some overtones of citrus fruits and peach. A delicate pale straw color which can very well pair with Japanese cuisine. However Japan doesn't stop there, they also produce a red wine from the same winery Diamond Winery-from our wine cellar Soif d’ailleurs. The wine is Y Cube Muscat Bailey A 2014 done with 100% Muscat Bailey A grapes. This wine is elegant because of its’ fine Burgundy vinification method using a Hambourg grape variety. In this blog, I wanted to show you some different countries from those who are already well known players on the wine making market. I hope you enjoyed our little try around the world. Cheers to the discovery of wine! Liliya Stoycheva A découvrir ici ‣
