Date tasted: 12/17/14
Place tasted: I could hear birds chirping over the sound of busses and shuffling shoes. Bells ringing outside store fronts with Santas attached to them struck a note of nostalgia in me where a smile broke lose from it's captive pain. The chorus of chatter from flocks of people in the streets was filled with a joyful sort of chaos. As I focused on the similarities between the sounds of people and the sounds of birds in collective unison, time slowed down enough for me to see, to hear, to experience something more complete than the fragments of funhouse mirrors that too often reflect distorted ideas about the world around me.
May your consciousness be filled with the naked truth, your heart be full with compassion, and your spirit free to fly to the destinations of your wildest imagination. Salute!
Served with: Mandala hors d oeuvre plates. It would be wonderful with any subtle elegant seafood such as clams, mussels, oysters, scallops or lobster. Also caviar, smoked saLmon, chicken, and things in rich buttery cream sauces would complement nicely.
Appearance: Twinkles like starlight in your glass, pale and clear with tight bubbles soaring in beautifully choreographed movement like a tiny liquid universe.
On the snoot: Ripe fragrant pear and citrus with a lily of the valley halo.
Taste: Bright apple and sweet grapefruit combine with gentle hugs of honeysuckle carmel. Wet mineral over cold stone stroke the edges of the palate until a crisp clean finish releases the senses from the pitter patter of tiny bubbles that fascinate and captivate throughout.
Balance: Perfectly balanced. Light bodied, dry and smooth with plentiful sparkling little bubbles.
Comments: Honey, I Loved it! It is special occasion worthy.
With New Years is just around the corner I'd like to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015. Cin Cin
