Chilled Wine hosts first wine tasting event – Riesling vs Sauvignon Blanc

On Friday, September 12th , Chilled Wine opened its doors for the first and long awaited wine tasting event. Upon arrival, the 30 guests were welcomed with a glass of Michael Trenz’s Riesling Sparkling Brut before the official part of the “White Wine Night” was about to begin. The hosts introduced three types of German Riesling, starting out with Ellermann-Spiegel’s fruity and off-dry Schlabberwein Riesling. It was followed by the introduction of Peter Siener’s Rotliegend Riesling, convincing the guests that Riesling can be less fruity and dry in taste. Holger Daniel’s well-balanced and full-bodied Signature Riesling rounded up the first set of wines that perfectly matched the Canapées which included smoked salmon, Iberico ham & melon as well as a variety of cheese.

The black sheep (in a good and tasty way of course) in between the white wine sets was Markus Schneider’s Saigner Rosé (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and St. Laurent) that was highly appreciated by the ladies. The second set of the night was all about Sauvignon Blanc. The by now tipsy crowd was introduced to three totally different wines of this grape starting out with the “fruit bomb” from Ellermann-Spiegel which was followed by the medium fruity and yet dry Kaitui from Markus Schneider. The presentation of wines came to an end when Daniel’s One Sauvignon Blanc, one of Germany’s top dry and full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc’s was introduced.

The official part ended with a lucky draw and the obviously happy winner took home a magnum bottle of Schneider’s Black Print, a well-known red wine Cuvée from Germany. No, not immediately, as the night was just about to begin. The music, compiled by famous DJ Ben T. was turned up and the free flow party with all presented wines was on, only ending when the sun was starting to rise again…
