12 Celsius on Snooth

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • A 2013 climate study titled “Wine, climate change and conservation” by climate change expert Lee Hannah posited that the world's vineyards would experience average temperature increases between 2.5 and 4.7 degrees Celsius in the next 35 years.  While the forecast did not bode well for France, Italy and California, “swaths of the British Columbia...

  • The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg! The yolk is Priorat, the surrounding egg white is Montsant. Not very technical I ag... Read More

  • I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley  which is in ... Read More

  • I heard somewhere that white wines should be stored at the bottom of the home wine rack rather than at the top. Supposedly whites like it cooler (the old heat rises, cold falls theory), Now I know that wine's enemy is heat and changing temperatures, My wine rack is a 44 bottle system which stands about 4 feet high and I do keep the whites on the...

  • I have just recently encountered the expression "black glass tasting."  It sounds like in a black glass tasting, the participants are using black glasses so that they cannot discern the color of the wine.  I went to Wikipedia and saw this sentence regarding the rationale behind black glass tasting, "A taster's judgment can be prejudiced by knowi...

  • Château Haut-Bergey Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2006


    An appealing lemon-oil color in the glass with excellent body and viscosity (possibly a bit fat) judging by the legs forming on the sides of the glass. Typical grass, citrus and meadow herb on the nose - though slow to open. A liberal showing of Semillion characteristics - weeds, freshly mown lawn and peach cordial. A few sharper flavors of cit...

  • Hey, its me again, one of the newer kids on the block(I'll be asking a lot of questions for a while, until I have enough knowledge to share with others).  I know nothing of what you are supposed to do with White Wines vs Red Wines with storage before opening the bottle, while serving, or afterwards.Is there a difference of what you are supposed ...

  • Hewitson Shiraz Barossa Valley Ned & Henry's 2005


    This lovely, well respected little wine with the funky name was given 3 years of cellaring at 12 degrees Celsius. The results were more than acceptable: the wine is softer, more supple and approachable - more like Cornas. The nose is very Barossa with plum and blackberry jam - very much like we make here on the Lower Mainland of British Columb... Read More
