Yes, this is one of those great gifts from winemakers, no label, not for sale, just great stuff! . Inside this baby it is actually the Salton Talento wine (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tannat), vintage 2009. however instead of the typical French oak barrels used for ageing, this was aged in an American oak barrel for testing purposes. . The barrel in question is an Canton Grand Cru 3 Year open air-seasoned oak. The Canton Cooperage is owned by the big French firm Chêne & Cie., which is also onwers of the French cooperage Taransaud and the Hugarian Kádár cooperage. Many American cooperage firms season their oak in kiln and not in open air, effecting the quality of the wood and hence what it can do to the wine. . It has a powerful bouquet, lots of dark berries and vanilla on the nose. In the mouth the fruit still rather fresh, very floral and spicy like vanilla and coconut. Full-body, medium tannin and well balanced acidity. Have tasted a few vintages of the Talento and can say this one is a very different wine, would say even it is a better version of it! . What a very good wood can do with wine, amazing! ___________________________________________________________ #vinperitus #wine #winetasting #winereview #wset3 #vinhos #vinho #vino #vin #вино #ワイン #와인 #红酒 #יין #wein #vinhos #redwine #vinhotinto #tinto #wood #oak #carvalho #madeira #winemaker #enólogo #flavour #americanoak #vanilla #baunilha #coconut @vinicola_salton @vinicolasalton @vinhochurchill

It feels it was yesterday but has been 10 years since graduated from the Advanced level of the WSET, or WSET3 as is commonly called. .

Magnum Guaspari Cabernet Franc Cabernet sauvignon Vista da Mata 2014 . The brand new release from Guaspari, famous for their Syrah´s they have decided to create a Bordeaux blend. The vineyard is at 1200m above sea-level with Serra da Mantiqueira´s view, located in Espírito Santo do Pinhal, SP, border with Minas Gerais estate. . This is a blend of 35% Cabernet Franc and 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, handpicked and selected fruits with 19 months spent in French oak barrels and antoher 12 months ageing in the bottle before release. Only 6000 bottles of 750ml and 2000 bottles of Magnum were made. . Dark colour with a bouquet on the nose of dark cherries, blackcurrants, green pepper and a hint of cocoa. In the mouth the black and dark fruit marks the main notes, however a predominant green pepper taste overkills the flavours, masking most of the fruit and spices character from the wood. Full-body, high tannin and acidity, needs ageing, too young at the moment, . Going back to the green pepper taste, this is due to the chemical compound called pyrazine, that gives this green pepper taste and common in Cabernet´s grape varietals. It is a note I find in most of the Cabernet Sauvignon´s from Brazil, with very few exceptions where they managed to reduce and blend it well. With time, if a wine is made to be aged, then this note is tamed to an extent. It is a pity in such wine made with care to have this un-balanced flavour. Most wineries keep trying to make a Cabernet Sauvignon based, being 100% or in a blend, however realy find this varietals is not much suited to Brazil. ___________________________________________________________ #vinperitus #wine #winetasting #winereview #wset3 #vinhos #vinho #vino #vin #вино #ワイン #와인 #红酒 #יין #wein #vinhos #redwine #vinhotinto #tinto #cabernetfranc #cabernetsauvignon #terrior #bordeaux #guaspari #sp #sãopaulo #brazil #brasil #brazilianwine @vinicolaguaspari

Here we have the whole family! Every single vintage of this iconic 100% Cabernet Franc from Pinto Bandeira, in the Serra Gaúcha, Rio Grande do Sul. . This is a pet project of Nathan Churchil, an American residing in Brazil for the last 20 years and Marco Antônio Salton, from the Valmarino Winery. Nathan is a distributor of the Canton cooperage, an American company owned by the big French cooperage firm Taransaud. Canton of course produces American oak barrels, however they do the traditional way, like the French, letting the wood mature in open air for 36 months before the making of the barrels. . Nathan was a bit frustrated with the way the Brazilian winemakers use oak and preferring the French one, hence he decided to make his own wine using his barrels in partnership with Valmarino. They used medium toast for the on the barrels and let the wine age anything from about 18 to over 20 months. . One might say the labels are a copy of the Romanée-Conti wines, and it is. The story goes that the designer was with the full agenda and not ready in time for the release of the wines and since Nathan likes their wines and labels, decided to copy to pay tribute to Romanée-Conti.. . The babes: . – 2006 – bottle 0009 of 600 – 2008 – bottle 0814 of 1500 – 2011 – bottle 0001 of 1615 (priceless) – 2012 – bottle 0526 of 1492 – 2013 – bottle 0211 of 2917 – 2015 – bottle 0835 of 2712 ___________________________________________________________ #vinperitus #wine #winetasting #winereview #wset3 #vinhos #vinho #vino #vin #вино #ワイン #와인 #红酒 #יין #wein #vinhos #redwine #vinhotinto #tinto #cabernetfranc #pintobandeira #oak #barrel #wood #terroir #collection #vintage #priceless @vinhochurchill @vinicolavalmarino #cooperage #madeira

Miolo Quinta do Seival Castas Portuguesas 2011 . Quinta do Seival is located at the Campanha Gaúcha, southeast of Rio Grande do Sul and bothering Uruguay. Owned by the Miolo group, there is not just the vineyards but also a winery at the place. . Like the name says, it is a blend of Portuguese grapes, with 50% Touriga Nacional and 50% Tinta Roriz (Portuguese name for Tempranillo, the great grape of Rioja and Ribero del Duero). It was aged in brand new French oak barrels for 12 months. . On the nose a bouquet of dry figs, prunes, some dark chocolate and smoky aromas.. In the mouth flavours of black cherries compote, dark chocolate, , cold smoky pork loin, leather and herbal notes. Full-body, medium to high tannin and high acidity. Well balanced and with a long finish! . Like some of other vintages tasted, this wine is to be kept. It is quite drinkable now, but it will benefit from bottle ageing, would say at least 5 to 8 years. ___________________________________________________________ #vinperitus #wine #winetasting #winereview #wset3 #vinhos #vinho #vino #vin #вино #ワイン #와인 #红酒 #יין #wein #vinhos #redwine #vinhotinto #tinto #terroir #riograndedosul #touriganacional #tintaroriz #tempranillo #miolo #terroirbrasileiro #brasil #brazil #brazilianwine #quintadoseival @miolowinegroup @grupomiolo @winegardenmiolo
