Boston Wine Expo '99
Other European Wines

Icardi Moscato d'Asti "La Rosa Selvatica" '97--Light, fresh muscatty floral and orange-blossom nose. Lightly sweet, with a light fizz. Nice round coconut and peach flavors. A very nice, light (did you get that impression yet?) dessert wine.

Masciarelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo '96--A very tasty wine from this appellation. Leather and cherry aromas and flavors. Very lush, with a good, long, complex finish.

Schloss Saarstein Riesling Trocken Mosel-Saar-Ruwer QBA '97--Spritzy with decent apple flavors and a good clean finish.

Valckenberg Riesling Worms Rheinhessen QBA '96--Some VA on the nose. Grapefruit and green apple flavors. A bit tart, even with 1.1% residual sugar.

Valckenberg Gewurztraminer Pfalz QBA '97--Moderate varietal floral nose, with nice peachy notes in the mouth. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Slightly sweet. Fairly long finish.

Valckenberg Chardonnay Eiswein Rheinhessen '96--The first Chardonnay Eiswein I've ever seen from Germany. Nose is of candied pears and peaches. Very sweet in the mouth with honeyed peach and pear flavors. Thick and rich. Long sweet pear and honey finish with a floral note. Unusual and very nice dessert wine.

For some wines from Hungary, see the Tokaji seminar notes.
