Since the last time I wrote, which is more than 4 months ago, we had 4 more wine tastings.  So we have been consistently drinking, but I have not been consistently writing.  So I have quite a bit of catching up to do here…

We had GINI 11 back in May 11, at Vincent W’s place.  Since we were having white wine this time around, we figured we would like some seafood to go with it, so we ended up getting sashimi/sushi.  Originally we were going to have some Italian red wine, but since Vincent M, a big fan of Italian Red, couldn’t make it, we postponed those red wines until GINI 12.  Anyway, here are the white wines:

  1. Le Clos Jordanne Village Reserve Chardonnay 2004 (Niagara)
  2. Domaine Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet Champ Gain 2004 (Burgundy)
  3. Domaine Weinbach Riesling Schlossberg Cuvee Sainte Catherine Riesling 2005 (Alsace)
  4. Joh Jos Prum Riesling Spatlese Graacher Himmelreich Riesling 2003 (Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany)

During the 4 months that I was not writing, Andrew actually set up another blog to make notes for each wine we tried in GINI tastings.  <http://www.seatourist.com/gini-wine-tasting/> Since he is doing a great job with the taste notes, I’ll get lazy and not writing taste notes.  But I would post the results of voting for our favorite wine of each tasting.

The GINI Chardonnay/Riesling Index
We ranked the bottles 1 to 4, add up the numbers, whichever one has the lowest score is the best.  Here is the list of participants: Aaron, Alex, Andrew, Kwong C, Kwong T, Naomi, Rita, Stephanie, Vincent W.  Looking at the results, there was no clear winner; in fact 3 bottles got the same score, and the 4th one was just 2 points off.
