A Wild And Exciting Blind Tasting

This tasting had a bit of everything, and mostly surprises.

The 2013 Nicolas Joly, La Coulée de Serrant from The Loire had a pale copper colour and was as dry as the Atacama desert - and a Chenin Blanc.

The 2013 Remoissenet Père et Fils Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières tasted like a Marsanne/Roussanne from the Rhône.

The 2009 Petersons Back Block Shiraz was powerful and high alcohol - and this from the Hunter Valley

The 2005 Cullen Diana Madeline was masculine - possibly the last year when it was

The 2016 Vieux-Télégraphe La Crau burst out with fruit - normally a savoury style

This was a wine taster's nightmare, no, it was the wonderful world of wine.
