I'm new to wine-tasting and am taking the online class "ABCs of Wine Tasting". Ready for my first white wine tasting. They recommend 3 whites: a Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and a Riesling. I live in the country of Georgia, so it is difficult to find foreign wines. But there is a French-Georgian company that makes a Chardonnay-Mtsvane blend, and a Sauvignon Blanc-Mtsvane blend. The Chardonnay is aged in Oak 9 months and the Savignon 3 months. I also found a Reisling from Alsace. Hope it will work for comparison purposes.
I'll try it tonight with friends, so wines are in the fridge now.
This weekend, I'm going to a wine-tasting where they will compare 4 rare European wines with 4 rare Georgian wines, then follow with a 6-course feast with wine pairings. I'm looking forward to it. Wanted to take this class first to get a better idea of how wine tastings are done.
Have any of you tried any Georgian wines? What are your favorites?
