Alsace Wine Fair

Alsace Wine Fair
29 Aug 12:30 - 5:00 pm
Star Room 42/F, Langham Place Hotel Mongkok

With more than 23 fine wine stores displaying their Alsace exclusive wine for wine tastings, I myself is only one of the small drunkard wandering around for great wines.

Age range from 21 to 60, French, portugese, hongkongese...all are attracted by gorgeous riesling, gewurztraminer, pinot gris, pinot blanc, muscat...wowwww~~

Thanks for my fds recommending me to such a nice tasting event~

White wine used to be female's favourite, no wonder most guys are companying their girlfriends. Foccasia, brie cheese, celery, carrots and cucumber which fills the guests' lunch even though drunkard like me challenge the wine with empty tummy can still stay "sober" for a while.

I used to love Riesling's pear and green apple flavour. In this wine event, most riesling are covered with plastic cock smell (though France normally adopts oak cock, that's weird),

Gewurztraminer's peach flavour is surprisingly giving me a wide exposure of how grapes can be that revoluntionary. Tried at least 16 shops' gewurztraminer, some are crystalized like dessert wine because of late harvesting, some are aromatic in smell yet light and crispy in body, some are typical peach with mineral hint of palate. You can't imagine they are from the same origin with same characteristics.

I ended up bought Hugel & Fils VT Gewurztraminer 2002 & Albert Mann Gewurztraminer 2007, with free Vintec 12 bottle wine cabinet yey~~~
