Those Who Criticise Are My Mentors.
Thanks for your complaints
A regular client bought some bin end offer wine and complained that it was not palatable.
It is a bottle of Movia Vila Marija Merlot 2012 which I offered a very big discount because of the odd bottles.
I asked if it is was corked or cooked. It was for her father in law and she had not tasted them. I promised her to refund after I tried a bottle in my warehouse and if it turned up to be problematic.
Movia is the state wine of Slovenia. Current wine maker Ales Kristancic is the student of Chateau Petrus and DRC. I have much faith in his Merlots. Vila Marija is made from grape grown in a younger vineyard with average vine age of 28 years old. Some producer called it Vieilles Vignes.
I opened a bottle on Monday. The up front nose is black cherry with hawthorn fruits. It is still young and tannic. 5 hours later, sweets spices followed. Three days later, it offered beautiful floral notes. On the ninth day, it smelled powerful fully ripen rock melon. I am still waiting to see how it will develop.
Are you joking? A bottle of red wine with aromas lasting for 9 days after opening? This is the magic of Mother Nature. As long as it is traditional natural way and use biodynamic approach to make wine, it is meant for ageing for decades.
This is my Christmas surprise that I still have 18 bottles on hand. Be quick!
