Winebeer, what a mix!

 TAGS:To me this new invention: the winebeer sounds quite weird. Just hearing its name I start getting all kinds of flashbacks as: cherrycoke, this drink with cherry and coke mixed together (puaghhhh!) about which it was nothing good except for the melody of its ad (mostly because it was catchy) and K2, and I’m not talking about the mountain but about that invention that some enlightened mind had of mixing dark and Virginia tobacco in one cigarette ... (no comment).

Luckily the ideologues who have taken this step have not gone further than white wine so we will not have to hear about a grotesque mix of red wine with beer. To mix red wine with something we already have the Coke which also originates such a social, cheap and rooted in popular culture drink as the “calimocho”, which even has its name in Spanish and all. That’s quality.

Synonyms for grape names (Part II)

Grapes

Uva perruna (doggy Grape), Pardillo, Negrera (slavers), Botón de gallo (rooster’s button …yes, it's what you have just read, it is the translation of those names. Local names for famous grapes... Do you want to know which ones are they?

Wine is universal, made worldwide, and elaborated most of the time with the local grapes, harvested in the place of manufacture.

These grapes despite having a distant origin have some "nicknames" in each and every different place. Let’s know some synonyms for grape names.

White grapes' aromas

Classic questions in those who approach to the world of wine tasting are on the aromas. How does this wine smell? What should you smell? The smell of one thing or another, is it good or bad?
White Wine GlassIf you've ever seen in movies the classic sketch in which an expert is able to reveal the vintage, type of grape, the origin, the make and even if the keeper of the wine cellar had cached a cold in October, you cannot help feeling frustrated, when then you go and smell a wine and you’re not able to identify any does things. However, it is normal at first not to know how does the wine you taste exactly smells. 

In my case, the transition has been far more natural than that. I tasted a wine, and if I liked it I would look at the label and tried to remember the name. Later, what type of grape was? In varietal wines, went gradually finding matches between a Chardonnay, for example, and a different grape. So I learned the aromas given off by each grape.
I could not name the aromas, but I knew the difference between a Macabeo and Riesling.
I always recommend start on tasting white wine, because the range of aromas are much different between each other (floral, fruit, herbs, honey ,...) than red wines, which can also include aromas of barrel aging .
