WTN: couple BTG Austrians

by Dale Williams » Fri Jun 29, 2018 1:57 pm

Tuesday Betsy took me to Boro6, a newish wine bar in Hastings. We shared burrata with ramp pesto, a nice salad, open-faced tuna sandwich and proscuitto/buffalo mozz sandwich. A couple glasses, I wasn’t really planning on all Austrian (or both Hugl variants)

2017 Hugl-Winner Zweigelt
Sweet cherry, some oregano-y herb notes, tingly, good. B

2016 Hugl Gruner Veltliner
Pear and a little citrus, moderate acids, nothing that screams GV to me. B-

Ok, not great wine night, but we had fun and then enjoyed nice walk at Hastings waterfront

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
