木盒酒 Wooden Box Wine

 

木盒酒

表妹是我的鐵粉,常介紹朋友光顧。有一天她問我:“木盒酒是不是很貴?”。我愣住了!反問:“什麽是木盒酒?”。“我的朋友西門說,他從來也沒有喝過那些用木盒裝的酒,很想試試。是不是特別名貴?一般多少錢?”

 

我笑到掉在地上!於是我解釋。好些酒莊為了運輸安全,都會用木盒裝箱比較珍貴的酒,例如酒莊的旗艦標;目的是防盜防震。差不多所有的波爾多上梅鐸的名莊酒,都採用木盒包裝。可以說是一般用木盒裝的酒都會比較貴。但好些十分名貴的酒,只採用紙盒。鼎鼎大名的西班牙蘋古斯酒莊,以及義大利蒙特奇諾的索德藍酒莊;珍稀年份上萬元一瓶,都是用紙盒。

 

凡事有例外;表妹這一問,提醒了我有些性價比十分高的“木盒酒”。

 

義大利皮埃蒙特的傑諾連羅(Grignolino)葡萄比較鮮為人知。她和她的老鄉渌淇(Ruche) 命運和個性都十分相似;曾經一度瀕臨絕種,也是充滿玫瑰、紫羅蘭、槐花花香的葡萄品種。最明顯的分別是㜛齡時餘韻比較澀。傑諾連羅的意思是很多核,我暱稱她為核多多。因為核多,單寧也比較高,所以窖藏潛力十分高,一般的瓶齡可達30-40年。別看她酒體單薄,配肥膩的肉也卓卓有餘,而且很百搭。如果您喜歡黑皮諾,您也會喜歡核多多。蒙特巴拉的核多多陶瓶釀,是由獲獎無數的著名釀酒師路加卡馬拉連奴泡製,用古董陶瓶浸釀,原汁原味,風格天然、細膩骨子、高雅大氣。配得起木盒唷!

 

 

Wooden Box Wine 

My cousin is my die-hard fan. Once she asked me: “Is that wooden box wine very expensive?”. I was stunned and ask: “What do you mean by wooden box wine”. She then told me: “My friend Simon told me that he had never tried those wine packed in wooden box. Is it very expensive?”.

 

I laughed and fell from my chair! Then I explained. Many producers pack their precious wine such as flag ship label in wooden case for safe logistic. Original wood case protects wine from shocks, breakage and theft. Almost all Classified Bordeaux from Haut Medoc are packed in wooden case. In general wine packed in wooden case are comparatively expensive. However many precious, fine, and rare wine are packed in cartoon boxes. For example: world renowned Pingus from Spain and Soldera from Montalcino Tuscany are packed in cartoon boxes though their good vintages are sold up to ten thousand HK dollars per bottle.

 

There is always exception. My cousin’s question reminds me that I have a small handful of “Wooden Box Wine” of good value for money.

 

Grignolino of Piemonte Italy is not well known among drinkers. It is very much like its folk Ruche in terms of destiny and character. It was once close to extinction. It is very floral with aromas of rose, acacia and violet. The biggest difference is the strong astringency in the after taste when it is young. The word “ Grignolino” indeed means a lot of pits. I created a nick name for it: Pitty. Since it has got lots of pits, it contains very high tannin. High tannin enable longevity in bottle. Cellar potential can be up to 30 to 40 years. It makes light bodied wine but can paired with heavy meat and it is very versatile. If you like Pinot Noir, you will probably like Gringnolino.

 

Montalbera Grignolino L’Anfora is made by awards winning wine maker Luca Caramelino. It is aged in antique amphora in order to keep the least human intervention and the original flavour. It is natural, delicate with much finesse, elegant and classy. Therefore, it is worth being packed in wooden box.
