Austrian Wine Appreciation Workshop

On the 19th Oct Wednesday, I attended an Austrian wine appreciation workshop with Ms Poh Q2 / KT and of course my wife. We had a great time there with finger food (chicken wings, Brie and Cambermart cheese). Never knew that the Grassroot’s club near the Yio Chu Kang MRT has such a nice cosy place like the WineRoom (run by Le Raisin)

The wines we tasted included ( :

Weiner Gruner Veltliner
Loimer Riesling Langelois
Heinrich Weissburgunder
Heinrich Zweigelt

Pockl Zweigelt
Skoff Hochsulz Sauvignon

Dessert Wine
Skoff Chardonnay Trockenbeerenauslese

Both Ms Poh Q2 / KT loved the dessert wine the most (each of them bought one - not cheap though!) and I must confess myself that it’s one of the best dessert wines I have ever tasted. Tastes like pure refined Honey intensely flavoured with peaches, oranges and apricotes. However, I felt the reds were good, but lacking somewhat in their finesse and flavoursome that French and Australian wines possess.

    Trockenberrenauslese!!! Wine Dragon still cannot pronounce this! Ho ho ho!

    Most of the time it comes out as "trickenbooorenaus .. ...".

    The stunningly brillant linguist that is KT got it in the 1st try! Bravo!

    Cant wait to open it. :)
