Wine Guest Write: KT

Hi folks,

I held a bday party/mahjong party for one of my best friends, Weishan @ my Lorong K hideaway last evening and we opened this wine that i have been dying to try since my other bunch of friends gave it to me and its the " Casillero del diablo "

(I received a new bottle of red wine but i'd leave it for another day)

The Casillero del Diablo that i have is a 2003 Chardonnay from Chile. It has an interesting story to it and it began more than a 100 yrs ago when Don Melchor de Concha y Toro, founder of the winery, reserved for himself an exclusive batch of the best wines they produced. And to keep strangers away from this private reserve, he spread the rumour that the Devil lived in that place. Hence the name Casillero del Diablo: Cellar of the Devil.

Anyway forgive the following amateurish review:

Smell: Lemony, pineapples against the backdrop of vanilla

Taste: Green apples, pineapple and strong lemon/citric flavour

After taste: The entire citric burst of pineapples and citric is pretty apparent

Not a bad choice if you are serving fish, pasta or with salads... :)
